Production Description

Casting "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. The show 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 1960s, 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."
