Mancunian Rhapsody
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Jewish mother of three, Rivki has a secret - Freddie Mercury is her hero. Her nerdy son, Rabbi Michael plans to marry American fiance Devorah, until devastating rumours emerge. A true-ish, Jew-ish musical comedy - it's a kind of tragic! Religious identity, forbidden familial and sexual relationships, betrayal and the power of gossip are all showcased through parody and popular music! A show not only about the extremes of Jewish life, but also the role of musical theatre itself.
