A Jewish Joke

at  Theatre Row

Previews begin March 7

In A Jewish Joke  Bernie Lutz is a curmudgeonly Jewish comedy screenwriter from MGM, who comes up against the Communist blacklist in 1950’s Hollywood. Now, he has to decide what's more important - his friends, or his livelihood? Armed with stories about the great era of Jewish humor, this poignant solo dramedy is about one American's fight against one of the darkest moments of the mid-20th century. A Jewish Joke began in San Diego and has toured regionally with critically-acclaimed engagements in Chicago, St. Louis, Louisville, and New Haven.

This drama about comedy is co-written by Marni Freedman and Phil Johnson, performed by Mr. Johnson and directed by David Ellenstein.
