Everything’s Coming Up Moses!

Come see Tablet’s Passover musical

Print Email

Come one, come all—or at least as many as can fit into the Laurie Beechman Theatre—next Thursday, March 25th, for the debut performance of Everything’s Coming Up Moses. The (mostly) original musical, presented by Tablet Magazine, comes from the truly unique brain of contributing editor Rachel Shukert. There’s no possible way I could improve upon the description the Beechman gives:

Lift the staff! Part the sea! We got nothing to do but be free! Everything’s Coming Up Moses is a musical retelling of the Exodus as seen through the larger-than-life journey of Moses, the original pushy stage mother. Through an irresistible blend of Broadway razzle-dazzle, old-fashioned show biz moxie and soon-to-be musical classics like Some Hebrews, Mose’s Turn and of course, the title number, Moses tirelessly shepherds the Children of Israel to the Promised Land—whether they like it or not.

With Broadway stars Seth Rudetsky as Moses, Matt Cavenaugh as Pharaoh, and special guest (and contributing editor) David Rakoff as God!

It’s going down at the Beechman, on 42nd St. and 9th Avenue in Manhattan. There is a $15 cover, plus a $15 food/beverage minimum (what, you should starve?). For reservations, call 212.695.6909.

You want me to go where? Now? It’s my busy season! How can I leave?!

Thanks for information.

It’s not April 1 today, is it?

Sonia Blue says:

I hope the show includes:

“If Moses Got Married” A sing-along with ALL Jewish Mothers in the audience.
“Little Lamb” sung to livestock apologizing in advance.
“Some People” Israelites sing in indignation about those “pesky” Egyptians.
“Moses’ Turn” Moses’ solo….oh ya…it’s a show-stopper alright!
“You Gotta Get A Gimmick” song explaining G-d’s choice of plagues.
“Let Me Entertain You” Moses sings right before he presents the tablets.

I can only say “next year in California” PLEASE!

When is the record being released so the rest of us can enjoy the music also?
