Heres what critics and audiences have had to say about The Miracle of Long Johns:

Lefkowitz [goes] where very few performers go, other than the late, great George Carlin . . . the theater audience rollicks with laughter.
Ed Rubin, New York Theater Wire

85 minutes of pure genius, laughter and great stories. . . The audience loved it and laughed during the whole performance.   A great stage presence with a show-stopper quality made [the] full-of-energy evening unforgettable.  
 David Serero, critic,

The Miracle of Long Johns gave me fresh perspective on the life of a theater critic and renewed appreciation for long underwear! It also made me laugh till I cried!
- S. Watkins, Boulder Fringe audience member

Initial productions of THE MIRACLE OF LONG JOHNS in Boulder and NYC were entirely crowd-funded via Money remaining from that successful launch has gone to bringing the show back to Colorado and New York in 2016.  A video and more information are viewable at:

A theater critic for nearly three decades, David Lefkowitz left New York in 2009 and currently teaches at the University of Northern Colorado where his eclectic radio program, Daves Gone By (, is enjoying its 14th season.  Lefkowitzs play, Kandide, won the Lee Korf Playwriting Award and was produced in Los Angeles.  He also co-wrote and directed the acclaimed comedy, Shalom, Dammit! An Evening with Rabbi Sol Solomon, which played two engagements at NYCs Richmond Shepard and Roy Arias Theaters, as well as in Colorado.

Following development at the Boulder Fringe Festival and an award-winning appearance in the United Solo Theater Festival, THE MIRACLE OF LONG JOHNS returns to New York City for these four performances, with an eye towards adding more cities and a commercial engagement in the future.

Come see the latest play by an author critics have called courageous, funny and thoughtful and even profound.  Because miracles DO happen.
