In spring 2018 the Seattle Jewish Theater Company, now in our eighth year, will present “I Can Get It For You Wholesale” at venues throughout the Seattle area. This classic Jewish musical is set in New York’s garment district in 1937. It was a hit on Broadway in 1962, running 300 performances, and launched the careers of Barbra Streisand and Elliott Gould.
A favorite with audiences, the show also garnered major critical acclaim:
“A bargain retail … Hearty, warm and enormously appealing.” W. Glover, Associated Press
“The best thing of 1962.” Leon Pearson, NBC
“Should be seen by playgoers who respect quality theater.” R. Cooke, Wall Street Journal
“More times than you can count, you are touched to the point of tears, dissolved in tenderness, or excited to a point of breathlessness. Actually you do not watch I Can Get It For You Wholesale. You are in it.” Norman Nadel, New York World Telegram & Sun
Auditions will be held in November, rehearsals begin in January, performances throughout the Seattle area in March and April. Stay tuned for details. For more information contact, SeattleJewishTheaterCompany@gmail.com.
