I Did It My Way In Yiddish (in English)

May 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| $25

DEB FILLER’S GOT INCREDIBLE STORIES TO TELL! The internationally-renowned comic performer, musician and writer Deb Filler returns to New York with her new one-woman show, I Did It My Way in Yiddish (in English), heading to Metropolitan Room for its US premiere for one night only – THURSDAY May 4! Tickets are on sale now.

In this international smash hit, New Zealand’s only Jewish comic entertains with a brilliant evening of stories and songs audiences will never ever forget. Among others, Filler recounts funny, moving, stories of her meetings with the Lenny’s: Leonard Cohen, Leonard Bernstein and another Jewish musician called Lenny. The audience delightedly travels along with Deb as she journeys around the world on this jam-packed music-filled show, with just a guitar and a raft of loveable characters she creates.

Originally commissioned and presented by London, England’s JW3, it has also wowed audiences in Jerusalem, Sydney and Los Angeles. Filler now brings I Did It My Way in Yiddish (in English) to New York for its US premiere, letting us in on her truly incredible (and mostly-true) stories.

As Deb drives for a car service in New York City, she takes us on a truly incredible ride with Leonard Cohen, reducing the venerable Canadian folksinger to tears of laughter. Her story of meeting Leonard Bernstein as a teen, bringing him fresh challah bread from her father, a survivor of the Holocaust who heard Bernstein play Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue in a Displaced Persons’ Camp after the war, is extraordinary. What happens next is truly unbelievable.
