The “Chagall” hits the fan in this razor-sharp comedy from the author of Blazing Saddles, The In-Laws, and The Freshman! Art dealers, David and Barbara Kahn have it made. They live their ideal life in their swank New York apartment surrounded by the finest in modern art—and isolated from their bizarre relations. What could possibly go wrong? EVERYTHING! When Barbara’s dreary sister and her nebbish accountant husband show up from Long Island with their impossible Jewish mother in tow, the comic sparks fly!

"This Broadway hit comedy will leave you smiling a little, laughing a lot, and going home feeling happier than when you came in"  said Eric Hafen, Producing Artistic Director of the Bickford Theatre.
