A delightful buddy comedy about a pair of Chabad-Lubavitcher Jews driving their 1991 Mitzvah Tank through the streets of Crown Heights. A Theater J world premiere.
Zalmy lives a double life: by day, he s the rebbe s loyal foot soldier, driving a tricked-out Mitzvah Tank through NYC with his best friend Shmuel. By night, he sneaks away from his orthodox community to roller-skate, dance in discos, and listen to rock and roll. But when he befriends a zealous young man eager to be his student, the barrier between Zalmy s two worlds starts to crack until he finds himself in the middle of the 1991 Crown Heights riots and must choose once and for all where he belongs. Overflowing with humor and heart, you won t want to miss this delightful new play making its world premiere at Theater J.
