Gay times are upon us, musical luvers! You Won’t Succeed on Broadway if You Don’t Have Any Jews – a co-production of English National Theatre of Israel and London’s Collaborative Artists is coming to Tel Aviv Museum of Art next week. The show brings together West End stars from London and top-class Israeli performers, in a large-scale musical spectacular. What a fantastic celebration of the enormous contribution the Jewish people have made to musical theater throughout history! Got your ticket already?

The fierce title of show comes from Monty Python’s Spamalot – which was eventually changed as apparently offended some people. This won’t be a problem in Israel! Johannah Jolson, Founder and Artistic Director of the English National Theatre of Israel says; “We are passionate about producing and promoting not only high quality, professional English-language theatre – but also theatre that resonates specifically with audiences here in Israel. We firmly believe that international partnerships such as this one are the most powerful way we can be ambassadors for the arts and artists in Israel.”

Prior the big premiere I sat down with multi-talented and super hot (oops, did I say that out loud?) British actor and producer Daniel Donskoy –  who said: “With the rise in anti-Semitism across Europe and all over the world, we believe that this project is essential, not just for Jewish performers – but for everyone.  It is a chance to rebuild bridges that are being destroyed by racism and prejudice.  This show neither discusses Jewish suffering, nor is it political.  It is simply a celebration of the enormous Jewish success in show business.”
