Role: HOWARD LIZT (formerly, Lishinsky) a professional actor and singer who was to appear as Tevye in the ship’s production of Fiddler on the Roof. Very Charming and charismatic. He has the ability to relate to the audience as a standup comic. Although he has been in show business for many years, he has had limited contact with real show business nuns. The role is a baritone and age is undetermined.
Plot: Meshuggah-Nuns! finds the sisters on an all-expense-paid trip on the “Faiths of All Nations” Cruise. When the cast of “Fiddler on the Roof” (with the exception of the guy playing Tevye) gets seasick, the ship’s captain asks the sisters and Tevye to put on a show. The result- Meshuggah-Nuns! Hilarity reigns supreme on the high seas with songs like Say It In Yiddish, Contrition, In the Convent, and If I Were a Catholic. From Sister Amnesia’s attempt at magic to the sing-along Fiddlerspiel, Meshuggah-Nuns is an ecumenical fun-fest. You don’t have to be Catholic. You don’t have to be Jewish. This is a show for anyone who loves a good laugh!
Meshuggah-Nuns! is being presented through a special arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
