"Bar Mitzvah Boy" — LAST DAY

Primary tabs

(Feb. 10-18) — Based on Jack Rosenthal's award-winning 1976 BBC1 teleplay of the same name, "Bar Mitzvah Boy" is a bittersweet musical comedy about a young Jewish boy who runs away from his bar mitzvah into which his parents have poured their efforts and money. Looking at the adult world, young Eliot Green doubts if he can cope with being a part of it. 

Originally produced at Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End in 1978, "Bar Mitzvah Boy" is composer Jule Styne's only musical written expressly for London, and this presentation marks the New York premiere of a new version first presented in London in 2016, with a book adapted by David Thompson and new songs with lyrics by Black, using previously unheard Styne melodies. Annette Jolles ("Mark Felt," "Superstar") directs.
