Chutzpah A Go-Go

Synopsis:
The story of four singing actors, from the fictional Jewish town of Bubkes, North Dakota (Pop. 107). These tummlers are on the road with a musical tribute to their unique prairie Jewish heritage and some of the comic contributions that Yiddish has made to the English language. They have been mistakenly booked into a church auditorium and are using the church's musicians as their own live Klezmer band. Combining song, dance, satire and shtick, these multi-talented performers present an irreverent portrait of their town. In its own irrepressible way, CHUTZPAH a GO-GO celebrates the ongoing contribution of Yiddishkite to North American culture. It's as familiar as Bubbe's chicken soup and matzoh balls. . .and it will stay with you as long.
