Jews on First (aka The Right Pitch)

A Jewish Musical about More than Getting on Base Play and Discussion

In celebration of the opening of the 2016 baseball season, a new musical Jews on First, will premiere at the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) located at 15 West 16th Street on Monday, April 11th at 7:00 PM.

Jews on First, adapted from Larry Ruttman’s award winning book American Jews & America’s Game — is an exploration of Jewish assimilation, identity, and guts viewed through the lens of America’s favorite pastime. It tells the story of Myron “Butch” Cedarbaum as he faces the biggest crisis of his life: to pursue his dream or the path his loving parents have sacrificed so hard to ensure —law school. The play is a dramatic examination of Jews’ enduring and mysterious love of baseball.
