The Axelrod is pleased to be premiering a hilarious, high-energy, swinging new musical, A MONKEY AND ME: Stories I Never Told My Mother by Broadway writer Jonathan Brielle Holtzman (Foxfire, Himself and Nora), headlining alongside six-time Emmy and Tony nominee, Tovah Feldshuh (Golda’s Balcony, Pippin, Becoming Dr. Ruth) and Emmy and Tony nominee, Veanne Cox (American In Paris, Caroline or Change, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Bruce Sabath (Company, Hello Again), Jennifer Sanchez (On Your Feet, West Side Story, Pretty Woman), Nancy Ticotin (Damn Yankees, Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, West Side Story) and Kate Marilley (The Prom, My Fair Lady, Flying Over Sunset) in his semi-autobiographical musical about growing up in Brielle, Deal & Asbury Park, wrestling with a monkey from his Las Vegas extravaganza and his theatrical Jewish mother—all in the name of learning to love yourself to find love.

Directed and choreographed by Kelli Barclay (associate on 42nd Street), A Monkey and
Me may make you laugh and consider all the things you should tell your mother!
