Bushel 1VEit A Peck
ffnai Moshe keys off music of "Guys and Dolls."
emember Guys and Dolts, the musical by Frank Loesser and Abe
Good. Now try to forget the musical, which brought comedi-
an Stubby Kaye into the public's consciousness singing "Sit
Down, You're Rockin' the Boat" in the 1950 Broadway hit.
In the musical Goys and Dolls, to be presented at 8 p.m. Jan. 31 at
Congregation B'nai Moshe, no one cares if you're rockin' the boat — as
long as your matzah balls float.
Goys and Dolls is not a parody of the popular musical, says Dan Sperling
of Farmington Hills, producer-director of B'nai Moshe's annual musical
fund-raiser. Instead, California writer Michael Lange has created an entirely
new story, using the original songs with new lyrics (sort of).
Instead of "If I Were a Bell," you'll hear "If He Knew How To Kvell";
instead of 'A Bushel And A Peck"; be prepared for 'A Bushel Mit A Peck."
"In the past, we've done cabaret-style shows, where people stood up and
did their song or whatever," says Sperling, a computer consultant in real life.
"This time, we decided to do something different."
Ticket prices for Congregation B'nai Moshe's production of Goys and
Dolls are $10 in advance, $12.50 at the door for members; $12.50 in
advance and S15 at the door for non-members. For advance tickets, c211

really affects concentration, the boys of Yeshivas Darchei
Torah have answers for you.
Both subjects were examined in depth at the Southfield
school's annual science fair, held Dec. 10. Other projects
examined aerodynamics, magnetism and static electricity — all
