You don't have to be Jewish to love Jewish Theatre Grand Rapids!
Jewish Theatre Grand Rapids has chosen three wonderful productions to share with you this season. Though our productions may have Jewish themes, they are always universal in appeal. Our goal is to enrich the Jewish experience in West Michigan, while informing, educating, and engaging our patrons. It's live theatre to learn, love and laugh with!
PERFORMANCES are on Thursdays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 3 p.m. Due to the smaller venue, LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS will also include 8 p.m. Wednesday evening performances. Call the Box Office at 616-234-3946. If the BUY TICKETS NOW button is enabled on the sidebar you may purchase tickets online for any of our productions. Season Subscribers should always book through the Box Office in order to redeem their passes.

Middle-aged and married, Barney wants to join the sexual revolution before it's too late. He arranges three seductions: the first proves to be a foul-mouthed bundle of neuroses; the next a 20-ish actress who is too kooky by half; finally, a gloomy, depressed housewife who happens to be married to Barney's best friend. This is pure Neil Simon at his best.

A small group of activists seek to rescue Jews from the Nazis. They find their efforts blocked by the indifference and anti-Semitism in the Roosevelt administration and the fears and timidity of the Jewish establishment. This true story is one man's fight to shatter a conspiracy of silence and inaction in the face of genocide.
