JUST FOR US

Just For Us

August 3 - August 6 | Main Stage

Performed by Alex Edelman

Taking to the Main Stage for six performances from Wednesday, August 3 – Saturday, August 6 will be Just For Us, performed by Alex Edelman. Just For Us takes the audience through hilarious anecdotes from Alex Edelman’s life — his Olympian brother AJ, an unconventional holiday season, and a gorilla that can do sign language – but at its center is an astonishing and frighteningly relevant story. After a string of anti-Semitic abuse is directed at Edelman online, he decides to covertly attend a gathering of White Nationalists in New York City and comes face to face with the people behind the keyboards. The result is a hair-raising encounter that gives Just For Us its title and final, jaw-dropping twist.

Creative team information will be announced at a later date. Program, casting, and COVID-19 protocols are subject to change.

TICKETS ARE $45 PLUS A $5 PER TICKET FEE; RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED
