We start our play search each season with goals that always include
our particular philosophy and mission, We look for true theatrical
merit, for relevance, for unique voices to enlighten, stimulate,
delight, and entertain you, our audience. Two years ago we creat-
ed a Stop Hate addendum, seeking out opportunities to focus on rel-
evant issues in our productions. We wanted to provide an arena for
dialogue by diverse groups within our community at our weekly
Thursday night "talkbacks". Curiously, each season of plays seems to
develop it's own personality, philosophy not withstanding. Laughter
is a resident at JET this year.

We know and so will you, that the author of Moonstruck, John Patrick Shanley, had some
serious reasons for writing Dirty Story, but a comedy it is, outrageous and funny. This play
premiered last season in New York to extraordinary reviews and we're privileged to pro-
vide its very next production. Followed by another comedy, Nobody's Gilgul, by Lois
Roisman was presented last season in our festival of new plays in staged readings. We
were urged, overwhelmingly, by our audiences to bring it to our main stage. Both of these
unique plays carry that magical element of surprise.

In winter, we'll bring you the remarkable Rebecca Gilman's gripping play, Boy Gets Girl.
Is it romantic or is it hiding something dangerous. This play asks serious questions about
what we presume about boy gets girl and other tales of people we don't know.

Finally, We're proud to present Fiddler on the Roof, a musical comedy that requires no
description, starring Cantor Harold Orbach and a terrific cast including Arthur Beer and
Henrietta Hermelin Weinberg.

We've a sumptuous theatrical menu at JET this year, garnished with smiles, songs and
laughs. So, join us. It wouldn't be the same without you!
