The Joint will be Jumpin' when the golden age of The Cotton Club and Savoy Ballroom get recreated in this rollicking, finger-snapping, toe-tapping and bawdy tribute to the Harlem Renaissance of the early 1900s. A stellar cast, including Di'ta Monique and Darren Frazier (The Hit Factory 1 & 2), Oscia Miles (Hairspray), Lorenzo Shawn Parnell (Blackfriars' Violet) and newcomer Sable Stewart perform the songs that made the inimitable "Fats" Waller an international sensation.

Calamari Sisters' (Kosher) Clambake

The Calamari Sisters have the juiciest clams in town!

The Calamari Sisters are back at the JCC after their record-breaking run of "Oy Vey" with an all-new show! This summer, Delphine & Carmela are cooking up a delightfully zany and slightly fishy picnic. You'll laugh until your sides hurt as these two plus size siblings sing, dance, and cook their way through the ins and outs of an Italian clam bake. (Please note, no actual clams will be harmed in the making of this totally Kosher event.) 

Run time: 90 minutes with no intermission.

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

Music and Lyrics by Michael Friedman; Book by Alex Timbers

Six years before Hamilton took Broadway by storm with its hip-hop telling of American history, a ground-breaking musical called BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON used modern rock to tell the story of our seventh President. Outrageously popular Off-Broadway, it quickly transferred to Broadway where critics hailed its revolutionary tone and astute commentary on modern politics. Depicting Andrew Jackson as a rock star, and voters as swooning fans, this story of a politically loose cannon who rose to power with his populist appeal is certain to resonate during the summer election cycle.
