An all-star Broadway-sourced cast lends its tuneful talents to the saga of Jewish music pioneer and spiritual teacher Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach in Soul Doctor, an exuberant biography of a cultural phenomenon. Hailed as a “must-see for history buffs and theater fans,” by the Times Picayune, the odyssey of the famed “rock-star rabbi” lifts off with rousing performances, airtight choreography, and Technicolor bell-bottoms. The Rabbi’s wild ride winds from war-torn Europe through the rampant granola addiction of ‘60s communes as he spreads love to the downtrodden, bonds with Nina Simone, and undergoes his own dark nights of the soul. Laced with more than 30 of Carlebach’s soul-stirring songs backed by a sweeping score from Aida and Tommy arranger Steve Margoshes, Soul Doctor is prepared to dominate Broadway as thoroughly as a 10,000-pound Andrew Lloyd Webber.
A lighted fountain draws guests beneath a neon marquee into the dramatic art deco entrance of the Colony Theatre. A three-year, $6.5 million-dollar restoration has returned the venue to its 1930s movie-palace glory, expanding the stage and adding a high-tech sound system while preserving each seat’s ideal sight lines and built-in monocle rest.
