The Bootlegger and the Rabbi's Daughter
Music by John Mercurio
Book & Lyrics by Tajlei Levis
It’s 1920 – New York City has gone dry and there’s money to be made by anyone who can get hold of some hooch. When an enterprising Italian immigrant discovers a synagogue full of sacramental wine, he convinces the Rabbi to take him on as a yeshiva student. It’s the perfect cover for monetizing the Manischewitz – until he falls for the Rabbi’s daughter.
