Welcome to one of Jerusalem’s newest attractions.  If you take an incredibly rich archeological site in Jerusalem’s Old City – the Tower of David, with remains from each period of Jerusalem history – and stage a new musical against that magnificent backdrop about a Jewish-American family’s time-tripping experience in Jerusalem, that’s AH, JERUSALEM!  

 

AH, JERUSALEM! EVERY FRIDAY AT 16:00 THROUGH OUT JULY AND AUGUST AT THE TOWER OF DAVID MUSEUM -

 

 

 

 

Be prepared to laugh.  The chief writer – who also directed and co-produced – is Bernie Kukoff, former producer/writer for such shows as The Cosby Show and Diff’rent Strokes and producer of five Broadway/off-Broadway shows, including the second-longest-running musical in off-Broadway history (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change).  Bernie is a New Yorker, a long-standing Zionist, and was thrilled to create this new work as a gift to the City of Jerusalem.

 

Be prepared to sing along.  The composer-lyricist – who also music-directed and co-produced – is Jerusalem-based Danny Paller, whose original score combines a contemporary musical-theater sound with musical flavors from across the centuries.

 

In the musical a Jewish family from Indianapolis – Charlie, Madeline, and their teen-age daughter Robin – unexpectedly end up on a strange “mission” in Jerusalem, for which they must make some challenging historical leaps with their gifted tour guide Shmulik

Along the way they find romance in the time of King Solomon, danger during the Crusades, and a “ticket to history” in a 1920s Jerusalem bus station.

 

Besides being fun and funny, the musical will raise some personal questions:

- How does being in Jerusalem challenge you?  What different sides of yourself does it bring out?  How does it change you?

- If you were to step back in time, to which Jerusalem century would you go?  Who would you want to meet?  Why?

- How can one city hold onto so many times and peoples?  

- AH, JERUSALEM! is the Axelrods’ Jerusalem story.  What’s your Jerusalem story?

 

AH, JERUSALEM! EVERY FRIDAY AT 16:00 THROUGH OUT JULY AND AUGUST AT THE TOWER OF DAVID MUSEUM -
