Comments 12 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The 17th annual Chutzpah! Lisa Nemetz International Jewish Performing Arts Festival is coming up February 16 to March 13, 2017. It’s the Lower Mainland’s winter music, dance, comedy and theatre festival presenting international, national and local artists. The Chutzpah! Festival delivers audiences work that is forward-looking, multi-layered, and entertaining.

Chutzpah! Festival

After the success of Chutzpah’s first literary event in 2016, this year Chutzpah! features author Christopher Noxon in “Hollywood Stories”, a special pre-festival event. And for the second year, Chutzpah!PLUS is co-presenting a Film Series with the Vancouver Jewish Film Centre.

Single tickets for Chutzpah! can be purchased online, by phone at the Chutzpah! Box Office: 604-257-5145 or Tickets Tonight: 604-684-2787. Chutzi Packs are also available: see 4 different shows of your choice for only $94 (excluding Ali Hassan and Judy Gold, Shalom Hanoch, David Broza and Mira Awad, The Klezmatics). New this year is a special 5-Show Dance Pack for shows at the Norman Rothstein Theatre for only $115.

Tickets will also be available in-person starting January 30th at the on-site Chutzpah! Box Office at the Jewish Community Centre, 950 West 41st Avenue, just 2 blocks west of the Oakridge Skytrain Station.

The 2017 Chutzpah! Festival have performances at the Norman Rothstein Theatre and other venues in and around Vancouver, including a Comedy Double Bill with Ali Hassan and Judy Gold.

Comedy Double Bill

In this solo show Muslim, Interrupted, Ali Hassan performs his bitingly funny piece of work on flunking out of Sunday school, ingesting forbidden fruits, and becoming a cultural Muslim. The show is a refreshingly hilarious antidote to our increasingly troubling global climate, delivered by this rising star of television, film, radio and stage.

Judy Gold has written and starred in 2 critically acclaimed, Off-Broadway hit shows, The Judy Show – My Life As A Sitcom, and 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, which was an audience favourite at the 2014 Chutzpah! Festival.

What: Comedy Double Bill with Ali Hassan and Judy Gold
Where: The York Theatre (639 Commercial Dr, Vancouver)
When: Friday February 24, 2017 at 8:00pm
Tickets: Available online now.
