Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
Soul Doctor is a new Broadway musical which tells the fascinating story of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, the beloved yet controversial father of popular Jewish music.
Carlebach escaped Nazi Germany when he was just a child and moved to New York City when he was in his teens.
Encounters with several key musicians helped fuel Carlebach's musical career, including Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger and Nina Simone. Today Carlebach's song-writing has been embraced by people from many religions as spiritual music and had a major impact on popular Jewish music.
Stars Eric Anderson and features over 30 of Shlomo's timeless hits.
