My pal and fellow board-member of Elisberg Industries, Rabbi Jack Moline -- who in his spare time is president of the Interfaith Alliance -- sent me this. It's not only quite funny, but particularly timely, thanks to dear Sean Spicer with his chain of Holocaust Centers. And since it fits well into today's theme, it seems a fine time to post it.
This is a musical number from the TV series, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I've never seen the show, but checking some details out, it seems as if they do a lot of musical sequences on the show.
There are a couple of small tidbits worth nothing. In addition to two-time Tony Award-winner Patti LuPone – who's very good in the scene, but particularly funny for not being Jewish, though playing a rabbi's wife here – the other “mother” in the scene (who joins her at the :39 mark singing and dancing about the Holocaust is Tovah Feldshuh, who's a semi-regular on the show (as the mother of the main character) and also has a very long Broadway career, with three Tony nominations, and among for many credits starred as “Yentl” in a short-lived stage adaptation of the story. And most recently she was in the current revival of Pippin. So, the TV show got some pretty good names for the sequence.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
