"Sounds Jewish, Doesn't It", NYC, 8 Mar 2015

Isabelle Ganz and Jed Distler in "Sounds Jewish, Doesn't It"

Sun, Mar 8, 6pm
Cornelia St. Cafe
29 Cornelia St.

Jed Distler, pianist extraordinaire, and Isabelle Ganz, singer, will be performing the show, written by Ganz, "Sounds Jewish, Doesn't It?". The show musically illustrates the Jewish origins (folk song, Yiddish Theater and Cantorial) of many familiar Broadway songs. We also tell stories about the composers, most of whom were Jewish, with the exception of Cole Porter, who tried to make his tunes sound Jewish when he discovered what was successful!

The cover is $20, including one drink. Come laugh with us!
