Bad Jews

Praise for Bad Jews 
"The best comedy of the season." —Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
 
 
"An altogether flawless cast!" —Scott Brown, New York Magazine
 
Roundabout Underground’s hit comedy Bad Jews has moved upstairs to the Laura Pels Theatre, and The New York Times calls it “the best comedy of the season!”
 
Tracee Chimo (Roundabout’s Harvey) is “sensational” (Time Out New York) as Daphna Feygenbaum, a “real Jew” with an Israeli boyfriend to prove it. When Daphna’s cousin Liam brings home his shiksa girlfriend Melody and declares ownership of their grandfather’s Chai necklace, it sparks a viciously hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy.
 
Chimo and fellow original cast members Philip Ettinger (Compliance), Molly Ranson (Carrie) and Michael Zegen (“Girls”) return in Joshua Harmon’s “smart and gleefully entertaining” (New York Post) play about the holy and the holier-than-thou. Daniel Aukin (4000 Miles) directs.
