The Cantor’s Couch

Book by Mark Bieler | Directed by Eleanor Reissa

Original Songs by Jonathan Comisar

The Cantor’s Couch (book by Mark Bieler), a journey through his real life stories growing up in the 1950’s in Borough Park, Brooklyn. The son of a loving deli owner and an overbearing mother, Cantor Mendelson paints a picture of a bygone day in Jewish America when Jews would flock to synagogue to hear the golden voices of cantors as if it were a concert hall. He recounts a relatable story of a childhood riddled with anxiety and doubt, mixed with joyous memories of music and celebration — all told with the expertise and comic timing of a master storyteller. Cantor Mendelson’s collaborator and accompanist will be Cantor Jonathan Comisar, who wrote original music for this production. Directed by Tony nominated Eleanor Reissa.
