222 E. Monroe
Philip Roger Roy and Playhouse Productions, Inc. present a limited engagement of the off-Broadway hit “Old Jews Telling Jokes” at the Herberger Theater Center at 222 E. Monroe in Phoenix. The national touring production will open on Wednesday, Dec. 25 at 7 pm and continues through Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020.
“Old Jews Telling Jokes,” created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent and directed by Jeremy Quinn, has been called a “pickle-barrel full of giggles” and showcases five actors in a revue-type production that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present.
It celebrates the rich tradition of Jewish humor and “all the rabbis, complaining wives, fed-up husbands, patience-challenged physicians, gossiping ladies, and competitive men’ populating it,” says Producer Philip Roger Roy.
The humor is suggestive and even raunchy as the ‘Old Jews’ make fun of themselves as well as followers of every other religion. It is recommended for ages 17 and above.
Ticket prices range from $45-65 and may be purchased online at PlayhouseInfo.com, by phone at 602-252-8497 or the Herberger Theater box office.
