"What If" in American Jewish History and Contemporary Jewish Life
 
Live Broadcast Begins at 7:30 p.m.
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( The Bernard Revel Graduate School for Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University)
The Bernard Revel Graduate School for Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Shown live on the Jewish Broadcast Service, this event will launch Professor Jeffrey S. Gurocks latest book, The Holocaust Averted: An Alternate History of American Jewry, 1938–1967 (Rutgers University Press).

The Holocaust Averted has already been lauded as a “provocative, path-breaking book… filled with familiar characters in unfamiliar and intriguing roles that is sure to challenge—and, quite possibly, to infuriate readers.”

This intriguing work considers what might have happened to the Jewish community in the United States if the Holocaust had never occurred and forces readers to contemplate how the road to acceptance and empowerment for todays American Jews could have been harder than it actually was.

Join the audience as Professor Gurock and Rabbi Golub explore many reasonable historical alternatives grounded in what is actually known about the tumultuous, catastrophic and climatic 30 years that bridge the beginnings of the Holocaust, the rise of the State of Israel and Israels triumph in the Six Day War, and what this novel approach to history tells about the real world that Jews live in today.

Book signing and collation to follow.

Casey----30 Years Later!
 
What's In the Basket? or should we say, What's in the Casket?
 
Venue: ( Broadway Comedy Club)

Producer: ( Beverly Bonner)

City: New York

Additional Notes:
CASEY----30 YEARS LATER! written by and starring Beverly Bonner, is based upon her “Casey” character in Frank Henenlotters cult horror film classic, “Basket Case.” Released in 1982, this horror film tells the story of a young man who carries his deformed conjoined twin brother in a large basket while seeking vengeance on the doctors who separated them against their will. Written and directed by Frank Henenlotter, “Basket Case” became a cult hit and spawned two sequels.

The live comedy play catches up with Bonners Casey character from the film series. Casey is running a bar in the East Village featuring Sexy Senior Hookers who, we find, are very feisty and forward thinking and definitely NOT retired. Casey has them “working”. Casey cherishes her spooky memories of Basket Case and continues to live in that world but is forced to deal with reality when dealing with the family of weidos surrounding her, tortured daily by her Reality Show obsessed dumb waitress “Kitty”, dogged by the NYPD who have reports of not only actions unbecoming of mature females but bodies turning up after last seen in Caseys establishment. There is infighting and generally disrespect by the Senior Sexy Ladies of the Evening, not to mention not enough money coming to keep the Landlord at Bay. There is her “friend” Hands in the Basket with bad eating habit, who may or may not be a serial murderer, and oh yes, there is her visiting innocent religious fanatic niece, Judy. Bobby DeLuca, a rabid fan of Casey, is a NYU reporter from his college newspaper and website, The NYU Notorious New who obsessed with all things “Casey and Basket Case.” It is through this Reporter that we learn what Casey has been up to these last 30 these years.

The show is hilarious and the chemistry and comic timing between Ms. Bonner and the rest of the cast makes for a laughing good time. Max Cheney, award winning blogger (The Drunken Severed Head), reviewed the 2011 world premiere of the show at

Des Bishop: Made In China
Monday, March 09, 2015 through Sunday, March 29, 2015
 
After a sold-out run and rave reviews at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe, the amazing Des Bishop returns to Barrow Street with his new show: ‘Made in China’!

Additional Notes:
***** - Time Out **** "warm and hilarious" - The List **** - The Guardian **** “compelling”– The Scotsman In 2013, American-born, Irish-bred Des Bishop moved to China, became fluent in Mandarin, and followed through on his dream of performing stand-up to a Chinese audience. This adventure also led him on a search to find a girlfriend at a Beijing marriage market, to a job in a very busy restaurant, and eventually to an entertaining appearance on a TV dating show with 40 million viewers! Made in China is a funny fantastic journey through a country (and people) we all feel we need to know better. The openness and honesty of his presenting style combined with his restless imagination and insightful comic observations make Des Bishop a “must-see” for fans of unique, enquiring and entertaining comedy.
