The Minnesota Jewish Theater is now performing a new play by Jon Maran, A Strange and Separate People.
What is it about? What else other than an emotionally-struggling Gay, Orthodox Jewish Doctor.
The Star Tribune reviews it and has some good comments:
He makes intriguing connections, like drawing parallels between different kinds of closets: hiding one’s gayness, being embarrassed to wear a yarmulke in public, and trying to keep secret an autistic child. The play gives all these tangled issues a strong emotional grounding.
Sound interesting? Stop by Minnesota and see it! As if it were that easy ;)
Although this isn’t directly related to Ketubahs, we’re very happy to see the plight of Gay Orthodox Jews get more prominence every day!
