MODERN ORTHODOX AT JRT CANCELLED
Sadly, after much thought and discussion, Jewish Repertory Theatre has decided to cancel our production of Modern Orthodox, scheduled to run April 23 – May 17. The JCC, home of the JRT, will be closed until at least March 30 and as rehearsals would have begun March 23, and we can’t be sure when the JCC will reopen or when the city will reopen public places, this was our only recourse. We are already discussing the possibility of including Modern Orthodox in our next season and will continue to keep you updated.
For now, stay safe, stay connected and please let friends and family know that we are doing our best to keep bringing you great theatre.
Jordana Halpern, Managing Director, JRT

God walks into a therapists’ office…..
When a conflicted and depressed God seeks out an earthly therapist to aid him with his wrenching doubts, it is not always clear who is providing therapy to whom. Ella, a single mother living with her autistic son, is a therapist with issues of her own, but has only one session to convince God not to give up on his creation. How do you help a “being” with no parents to blame?

Alice, an infertile Jewish woman in her forties, discovers a hard lump in her abdomen. After months of visiting expensive specialists, all of whom have different medical theories, a CT scan finally reveals that she is pregnant. Based upon true events and the book hailed by Oprah as “darkly hilarious…an unexpected bundle of joy,” this heartfelt journey through a high-risk pregnancy and the American healthcare system is told with the intimacy of a diary and the suspense of a thriller.

When Ben, an Upper West Side financial consultant, meets Hershel, an Orthodox jewel merchant, to buy an engagement ring, their differing views of their shared religion at first divides them. Three months later, with respective love interests and love stories on paths they could not have predicted, Ben and Hershel meet again as changed men, no longer divided by their faith. They have learned something from each other, and each couple is ready as Jews dealing with modern life, to embark on new marriages.
