"Mendel & Moses"
In the first musical of the trilogy (which we call "The Mendel Cycle") our Narrator, Mendel Moskowitz from
Brooklyn, goes back in time to ancient Egypt for a hilarious journey with Moses and the Children of
Israel, from Slavery through the Wilderness to the Promised Land.

"Charming and full of wit and wisdom! The writers Ginsberg have fashioned a
fable that is full of humor, drama, satire, song and dance. A bit of something for
everyone! A show worth seeing!" - Ed Kaufman, The Hollywood Reporter
"Excellent music! With its feet on the ground, its heart in the heavens, and that
irrepressible twinkle in its eye, Mendel & Moses is on the side of the angels and
good for what ails a sickened society! Critic's Choice!" - Polly Warfield, Drama-Logue
"Mendel brings humor and high spirits to the story! Rousing laughs along the
way!" - Don Shirley, The Los Angeles Times
