The winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and Five Drama Desk Awards, The Wiz retells Baum's tale of Dorothy, who is transported by a tornado to a world of Munchkins, witches, and magic. On her way to the Emerald City to meet the Wizard of Oz, who she believes can help her get back to Kansas, she encounters the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion - friends who help her battle the Wicked Witch of the West - and eventually learn that there really is 'no place like home'.

To say that an evening spent with Steve Solomon is like being with a dear, funny friend, is an understatement. In truth, an evening with Steve is more like being with dozens of hilarious friends and eccentric members of your own family.
Steve has taken the art of impersonation and honed it into a science. He masterfully weaves different dialects and crazy characters into his stories. These tales take on a life of their own as Steve recounts memorable moments from his past and makes hysterical observations of the things we all relate to.

"Like rye bread, kosher pickles, and bagels, this show is for everyone! You'll laugh 'til you plotz."
January 9 - February 10

Old Jews Telling Jokes showcases five actors in a comedy that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present.  It celebrates the rich tradition of Jewish humor "and all the rabbis, complaining wives, fed-up husbands, patience-challenged physicians, gossiping ladies and competitive men" populating it. The humor can be suggestive (sometimes even raunchy) as the 'Old Jews' make fun of themselves as well as followers of every other religion.
