Tolucan Times Loves Boychick!
The Boychick Affair
By Carol Kaufman Segal on October 29,2008
You are invited to a most unorthodox Bar Mitzvah, but I can bet that you will find it one of the most enjoyable ones you will ever attend!
“The Boychick Affair,” at the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City, brings you the Bar Mitzvah of Harry S. Boychick (an adorable Greg Mikurak) given by his Mother Cheryl (Amy Lord, writer and director) and her ex-husband, Aaron Boychick (Barry Papick).
Harry’s Bar Mitzvah is presided over by Rabbi Jules Friedman (Janice Markham), who by the way is a Lesbian expecting twins from a sperm donor! With his dysfunctional relatives, the Teitelbaums and the Grossmans, family friends (the Sanchez family) and any number of other outside friends, Harry’s Bar Mitzvah offers up an afternoon in which you can participate with the entire cast (18 in all) talk, dance and sing with them and feel like “one of the family.” At the same time, you will find yourself laughing all throughout the celebration. You will even get to enjoy the festive meal that comes with your “invitation.” But even though this is a happy occasion and everyone is having such a great time, as is usual in many cases when lots of relatives get together, there are family squabbles that arise during the party. Eventually, there are even secrets that are revealed that could possibly spoil this important event in Harry’s life. But never fear, the entire afternoon is all spent in fun and laughter.
“The Boychick Affair” is performed Sundays at 3 p.m., at the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City. Group tickets are available by contacting Rosalie Lazarus, (818) 986-3006; individual tickets by calling (800) 838-3006.
