Since 1997 Musicals Tonight! has revived  90 musicals worthy of one last run in front of a New York audience such as – Chee-Chee; That’s the Ticket; For Goodness Sake; and Paris.  They were created by the same geniuses who wrote Pal Joey; Fanny; Porgy & Bess; and Anything Goes.  But many companies larger than ours present the better-known works.  None have undertaken our mission.  And for that effort we were awarded an OBIE. 

Tickets for all shows, only $27.25

4 Matinees at 2:00 pm - Weds / Fri / Sat / Sun

UNITED SOLO FESTIVAL
PRESENTS
 A   J E W I S H   J O K E
 A DRAMA ABOUT COMEDY
WRITTEN BY MARNI FREEDMAN & PHIL JOHNSON
DIRECTED BY DAVID ELLENSTEIN
PERFORMED BY PHIL JOHNSON


SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17TH @4PM
THE STUDIO THEATRE @ THEATRE ROW
410 WEST 42ND STREET, NYC


United Solo Festival will present writer/performer Phil Johnson in his latest solo work, A Jewish Joke - a drama about comedy as relevant today is it was during the McCarthy era - in a single performance on Saturday, September 17th at 4pm at The Studio Theatre @ Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street – just east of Broadway.) Tickets are $18 and may be obtained through Telecharge.com/(212) 279-6200.  For further information, please visit www.ajewishjoke.com.

In A Jewish Joke, a curmudgeonly Jewish comedy screenwriter from MGM comes up against the Communist blacklist in 1950's Hollywood. Funny and lovable, Bernie has made his way up the ladder by being a spineless Hollywood sellout. He now has to make the biggest decision of his life. The night before a big red carpet premiere that will make Bernie's career, he has been asked to name names and give up a friend. Armed with stories about the great era of Jewish humor, this poignant and funny solo comedy shows one small man facing the tough American events of the mid-20th century and looking into the depths of his own soul.  A Jewish Joke had its World Premiere in San Diego in May and its Chicago premiere at Victory Gardens Theatre this past July.
