Modern Orthodox

By Daniel Goldfarb

Running May 5-29 

This hilarious and heartfelt comedy tells the story of Ben Jacobson, an Upper West Side financial consultant ready to propose to his long-time girlfriend Hannah, and Herschel Klein, an Orthodox diamond dealer tasked with selling Ben an engagement ring. After a fateful first meeting Herschel becomes entangled in the lives of Ben and Hannah for better and worse. Initially Ben and Herschel’s differing views on their shared religions divides them, but as both men struggle with romantic relationships and faith an unexpected bond is forged between them in their pursuit of love. 

Directed by Steve Vaughan

“Hilarious. There are lots of belly laughs, thanks to playwright Daniel Goldfarb’s ability to craft genuinely funny one-liners.” —NY Post.
