BELZ!--A JEWISH VAUDEVILLE MUSICAL
Story of the life of Hugo Schwarts, a fictional Jewish comedian from the Galician shtetl of Belz. We follow his successes, hart-breaks, marriage, love affairs, children,laughter and tears. All this on the background of the world history (WWI, Great Depression, WWII--all the way till the Hippie era.) We see Hugo performing in cabaret theaters of Mukachevo, Prague, Vienna, the Catskills and finally on Broadway.
This is a revival of a 1984/85 production that ran in LA sold out for over a year and became a cultural phenomenon.
Come to see 18 actors playing 65 characters, hear dozens of Jewish jokes, sing along with the songs you may know,laugh and cry with the heroes of our story.
The musical was written and directed by the internationally known writer/director Pavel Cerny (Circus Welt, Three Sisters or Perestroika) and stars many actors known from TV or the silver screen.
The show is in ENGLISH with some songs partially in Yiddish, Hungarian, Czech, or German.
