Ari Axelrod is back in Michigan to participate in Encore’s “Socially Distanced Summer Series.” 

For two nights, July 24 and July 25, Ann Arbor native Ari Axelrod is bringing his “Celebration of Jewish Broadway” to The Encore Musical Theatre in Dexter. The show is part of the theater’s “Socially Distanced Summer Series” sponsored by the Bernard L. Maas Foundation. 

His show honors the songs and stories of Jewish composers and their impact on American musicals. Melodies by Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Schwartz and Carole King are just some of the samples that you will hear that will take you on Jewish musical journey.
