RYAN, WE’RE JEWISH:
THE CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR
Ryan Raftery, creator and star of hit musicals based on Anna Wintour (Ryan Raftery is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion) and Andy Cohen (Ryan Raftery’s Watch What Happens – Live on Stage!), makes his Feinstein’s/54 Below debut with a very special holiday show. Ryan, We’re Jewish: The Christmas Spectacular tells the story of a boy born in Brooklyn to a Jewish mother and an Irish-Catholic father in a house where all holidays were in play. Complete with some of your favorite holiday classics parodied to hilarious effect, you won’t want to miss this special evening starring the man the New York Daily News has called “a one-man musical juggernaut.”
Ryan Raftery has written seven shows that have played all over New York City and across the country. He has been featured in Entertainment Weekly, New York magazine and most recently in this past August’s People magazine, sharing a page with none other than Idris Elba! He has appeared on television in Ugly Betty, What I Like About You, Malcolm in the Middle and – most notably – on Law & Order: SVU where he warmed hearts all over America as “Dennis Faber,” the lovable Amish teenager with measles.
