As Spamalot put it, “You just won’t succeed on Broadway if you don’t have any Jews.” How did people whose religion had long forbidden performance become a dominant force in the American theater? John Kenrick takes us on a joyous and insightful trip back in time, tracing how Jews took their place among Broadway’s leading producers, creators and performers.
