I did a week full of repeats of shows I’ve seen before – two of which I repeated again in the self-same week. (And one of them I even saw twice in less than 24 hours!)
‘You won’t succeed on Broadway if you don’t have any Jews.’ This quote from the Monty Python musical Spamalot has inspired a new show, dedicated to celebrating the contribution of Jewish people to musical theatre over the last century. From Stephen Sondheim to Irving Berlin, Jule Styne to Burt Bacharach, I certainly had no idea so many great names in the industry came from a Jewish background. (Although if I’m honest, I can’t say I’d ever actually thought about it.)
It has been said that ‘You won’t succeed on Broadway if you don’t have any Jews’. Broadway wouldn’t be what it
is today without the Jewish composers and writers whose melodies we so greatly adore. You Won’t Succeed on Broadway if You Don’t Have Any Jews – which runs at London’s St James Theatre (where Bad Jews made its London premiere earlier this year before transferring to the West End’s Arts Theatre) from 25 August to 5 September 2015 – is not in any way political.
Generally speaking, if you go to see a musical and the whole cast corpse midway through Act 1, it can be seen as a bad sing… thankfully, when the cast of Spamalot at the Mayflower did just that last night, we were all in on the joke (I won’t spoil it in case he uses it again, but suffice it to say, it involves Joe Pasquale mentioning Janet Street Porter and McDonald’s Fillet of Fish in quick succession).
