Tel Aviv will be celebrating the ongoing Jewish contribution to musical theater with the performance of You Won’t Succeed on Broadway if You Don’t Have Any Jews until July 17 at the Assia Auditorium, located in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. For the first time, Jewish theater stars from London’s West End will be taking the stage alongside Israeli performers, dancers and live musicians.

With musical numbers featuring the early sounds of Irving Berlin and contemporary hits from Rent, the show highlights the backstories of Broadway’s most famous Jewish writers, composers and directors, from the 1930s to the present.
