The Laurie Beechman Theatre on 42nd Street was packed last night for Tablet Magazine’s production of Everything’s Coming Up Moses, a re-telling of the Passover story as inspired by the legendary musical Gypsy. It was massively fun: The performers were outrageously talented and evinced the exact right irony-to-earnestness quotient. The music was, obviously, unbeatable. And contributing editor Rachel Shukert’s book and lyrics were hilarious and witty—really just inspired. Check out the lyrics to four of the songs: “Some Hebrews,” “Little Pascal Lamb,” “You Gotta Make a Living,” and, of course, the title number.
