Thursday, March 15th, 8:00 p.m. at Moxie Theatre
A Jewish Joke – A Drama About Comedy was awarded Best Drama at United Solo Festival NYC in 2016. The show will make its Off Broadway debut in January 2019! It has been receiving stellar reviews from recent productions in Hartford, CT, Chicago, San Diego and NYC including:

This one-man show starring Phil Johnson is set in the 1950s at the height of the Communist Blacklist, when careers were ruined by a whisper. Irascible comedy screenwriter Bernie Lutz, is funny, lovable and has made his way up the ladder by being a spineless Hollywood sellout. Now, the night before a big red-carpet premiere that will make Bernie’s career, he has been asked to name names and give up his friend. He has one day to decide if he will accede to government demands and save his skin, or protect his friend and save his soul in the most serious decision of his life. One man’s journey through a historical reality as well as into the depths of his own soul is the heart of this multi-layered, compelling, and relevant play.
