Theatre Chevruta: Fools

Date: April 23, 2017Time: 2:00 pm

The JCC's Theatre Chevruta is proud to present Fools, by Neil Simon.

Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic. He's landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic Russian hamlet. When he arrives he finds people sweeping dust from the stoops back into their houses and people milking upside down to get more cream. The town has been cursed with Chronic Stupidity for 200 years and Leon's job is to break the curse. No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes Stupid. But, he has fallen in love with a girl so Stupid that she has only recently learned how to sit down.

Show dates are Saturday, April 22nd at 7:00pm and Sunday, April 23rd at 2:00pm. Each show is followed by a post-show talkback.

Tickets: General admission $20, JCC members $15, students/seniors $10. JCC members, purchase tickets online in advance and your ticket is only $10.

Theatre Chevruta is the JCC's Jewish readers theatre program--staged readings of important, entertaining, and often unfamiliar offerings of Jewish theatre.  A staged reading is a fully cast, fully rehearsed presentation of a play with scripts in hand. Particularly popular in the development of new works and the revisiting of obscure works, the absence of lighting, sets, and costumes allows the focus to be on the actors and the words.
