Deb Filler’s wonderful new show takes us on a musical journey around the world. New Zealand’s only Jewish comic will entertain you with an evening of stories and songs you’ll never ever forget. Meet musical legends Leonard Cohen and Leonard Bernstein, amongst others. Recently commissioned by JW3 in London, and performed in LA, Sydney Australia and Jerusalem, this acclaimed one-woman tour-de-force takes us on a truly incredible ride with Leonard Cohen, reducing the folksinger to tears of laughter. Deb also brings Leonard Bernstein a fresh challah bread from her survivor father’s bakery. What happens next is extraordinary.
