Bad Jews

NextStop Theatre
269 Sunset Business Park Herndon

An equally hilarious and savage look at how sometimes family can be our greatest adversary and faith our most powerful weapon against them. The night after their grandfather's funeral, three cousins engage in a knock-down, drag-out war over a precious family heirloom that was protected through the Holocaust. In one corner is the volatile and self-righteous "Super Jew" Daphna Feygenbaum. In the other is her entitled and proudly-secular cousin Liam, with his "shiksa" girlfriend Melody in tow. Caught in the middle is Liam's brother, Jonah, who wants nothing more than to be left out of it. Bad Jews provides an irreverent take on faith in modern America, coming to NextStop Theatre in Northern Virginia.

DC Metro Theater Arts - Recommended

"...Harmon's writing is fluid, articulate, and pointed, and the characters, however unsympathetic, never fail to be interesting. While the script's humor is largely based in the mean-spiritedness of its main characters, there are a lot of very funny lines that the audience appreciated. The actors, under the direction of Cristina Alicea, deserve great credit for not only maintaining the generally rapid pace of the dialogue without missing a beat but for knowing when to pause, providing occasional moments of quiet before roaring off into the next flight of acrimony. Each actor gets to make the case for his or her character, and the actors take good advantage of their opportunities to do so."

"...The talented cast brings forth the heat in Harmon's writing. Especially Schulman, who portrays Daphna with megaphonic power. She charges, back and forth across NextStop's black box with a fierce air and a voice that's as voluminous as her thick, curly hair. Schaefer plays the short-fused Liam as though steam could blast out of his ears at any minute, using smart comedic timing to execute his blistering monologues."
