"The Time of Mendel's Trouble"
An Epic Musical of Biblical Proportions!
By Jeremiah & Wendy Ginsberg
An Actors Equity Showcase Successfully Produced in New York City
at The Beckett Theatre July 18-August 2, 2008!
|The third musical in our trilogy, "The Time of Mendel's Trouble," is an epic that dramatizes the Book of Revelation in that uniquely Jewish way that we do so well.
The story revolves around our hero, Mendel Moskowitz, who gets a visit from the Burning Bush which scoots into his living room in Brooklyn, and tells him, "Mendel, I'm making you a prophet." And Mendel replies, "It's about time I made a profit!" Even serious subjects can be dramatized with a bit of humor. He is then sent to Jerusalem and becomes one of the two end-time witnesses!
The show incorporates a Romeo & Juliet-type love story, political satire, comedy, tragedy, and the ultimate triumph of good over evil when the Messiah finally returns to earth!
The prophetic Biblical message of this new musical rings loud and clear: The Jewish Messiah is coming to establish true Shalom! It is a message of the great love of God for His people, and it is also a warning that there will be a time of tribulation:
"Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: It is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it." (Jeremiah 30:7)
The humorous political satire is extraordinary, as is the music. Sometimes, it's not possible to make political statements, but in the theater, there is unfettered artistic freedom. Our show shines the light on the U.N., the Arabs, the Muslims, the Russians, and the Politicians!
It's heartening to see more and more Christians standing as friends of Israel, because the Jewish people need all the friends they can get in a world that tolerates the fanatic lunatic of Iran who calls for Israel's destruction. This show beautifully proclaims the prophetic message that the Messiah will come to Zion and raise up the Tabernacle of David!
