A savagely hilarious comedy about family, faith and legacy. A beloved grandfather has died and a treasured family heirloom with religious significance is up for grabs — but who’s the most deserving? Bossy, overbearing, self-declared “super-Jew” Daphna? Her wealthy cousin Liam, just returned from skiing with his shiksa girlfriend, Melody? Or Jonah, Liam’s younger brother, who finds himself in the impossible position of peacemaker as the two rivals argue, insult and try to outwit each other to the bitter, hilarious end? The New York Times declared Bad Jews a “Critic's Pick… the best comedy of the season,” while the New York Post called it “delicious, nasty fun… a smart, divisive conversation starter.” Nominated for Lucille Lortel, Outer Critics Circle and John Gassner awards. April 21 – June 17: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. with four additional weeknight performances on Wed., May 9; Thurs., May 17; Wed., May 30; and Thurs., June 14, all at 8 p.m. Odyssey Theatre, 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., West Los Angeles, 90025; The third Friday of every month is wine night at the Odyssey: enjoy complimentary wine and snacks and mingle with the cast after the show.
