A Very Awesome Purim
A Very Beatles Purim (Philly & Brooklyn Tour)
March 16 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm
Wait, so you drink like it’s St. Patrick’s Day, dress up like it’s Halloween, and put on an interactive musical? What is this?
It’s Purim, of course.
Will you celebrate with us?
Every year, A Very Awesome Purim throws a big Purim party and puts on a musical about a drunken king, an evil prime minister, and a queen who saves the entire Jewish population. The production strikes a careful balance of off-color humor, on-key parodies, and surprisingly poignant lessons about cultural acceptance.With your help, we choose a theme—this year: “Beatles”—and translate it into an original musical telling the story of Purim.
This is what you can expect from the night:
An interactive musical featuring parodies of your favorite beatles songs.
Drinking! In Purim tradition, you’re supposed to drink until you can’t tell the difference between the good guy and the bad guy in the story. (It’s not difficult)
A costume party. Dress to the theme, or any costume will do.
A boisterous sing-a-long: : With songs like “Hey Jews” and “While their Shofars Gently Weep” and more audience participation than ever before, this is not a year to miss.
The greatest party of the year. We might be biased. Guess you’ll have to find out.
Purim-mania is coming in March to a theater near you (if you live in Philly…or Brooklyn!) Get ready to scream your lungs out for our Fab Four: John Lennonberg, Paul McCartneywitz, George Harristein, and Ringo Starr of David. Money can’t buy you love, but it can definitely buy you a ticket to A Very Beatles Purim.
Note: You do not need to be Jewish or know anything about Purim to attend this Purim party. This is a celebration for everyone.
Past themes include Broadway (2018), Disney (2017), One-Hit Wonders (2016), Glam Rock (2015) and 90’s (2014).
