HANNUKATZ THE MUSICAL
Inspired by his best-selling "Mad Magazine Meets the Talmud" retelling of history's first
oil crisis, HANNUKATZ SAVES HANNUKAH, Terry Abrahamson has, at long last, created a rocking, irreverent, interactive family theater event (and apparently a new spelling) for "that other December holiday."
HANNUKATZ THE MUSICAL is a totally new spin on Dreidl Days as presented by
the tie-dyed Meowmulkah-sporting title character on his Hannukah-eve visit to the
Skokie-based Moskowitz family's Hannukah-hating kids. Self-described in his Jerry Lee Lewis-inspired theme song as "a catnippy, kinda trippy, chocolate chippy old hippie," Hannukatz has been armed by Grammy-winner Abrahamson (book/lyrics) and collaborator Michael Carlson (music) with an arsenal of rousing Hannukarols like "Do the Chhhh," "No Jews Allowed," and "Hannukah is Not the Jewish Christmas." The audience participation highlights include the "Make a Chhhhh" contest and the sing-along battle hymn "The Open-a-Can-of-Potch-in-Tuchas (the kosher equivalent of opening a can of Whoop-Ass) March."
