Production Description

Casting the Broadway production of "Soul Doctor." Producer states: "'Soul Doctor,' the exuberant new Broadway musical, tells the true story of the beloved yet controversial father of popular Jewish music, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. A modern day troubadour, he ignited the spirit of millions around the world with his soul-stirring melodies, transformative storytelling, and boundless love. 'Soul Doctor' takes us on a musical odyssey through the challenges and triumphs of this cultural phenomenon: his childhood escape from Nazi Germany, becoming a rabbinical prodigy in America; his unlikely friendship with Nina Simone, discovering Gospel and Soul music; his meteoric rise as a 'Rock Star-Rabbi' in the 1960’s, performing with Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead; his struggle to reconcile his deep traditional roots with his desire to reach people of all backgrounds in the 'free-love generation'; and his personal conflicts trying to keep his family together while traversing the globe as a 'Soul Doctor,' bringing joy and song to the lonely, the searching and the brokenhearted."
