Aug. 8: Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad at Judd’s Hill Winery

Stripping down to panties stamped with a strategically placed Star of David while clarinet Klezmer music wails away. Lighting cigars off the menorah. Reciting beat poetry with questions like “Should I fiddle on a fucking roof for you?” It’s all included in the beer-swilling musical-comedy-burlesque show ‘Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad.’ The brainchild of New Yorker Susannah Perlmann, whose bat mitzvah turned into a waterfall of teenage liquor consumption and subsequently supplied her with a hungover critical fisheye on her religion, Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad is saucy, ballsy and irreverent in all the most entertaining ways. Think of it as Beach Blanket Babylon with borscht, rhinoplasty and pasties. It’s the sort of thing they’d never allow on stage at the local synagogue when the Nice Jewish Girls go bad—in a benefit for the local synagogue—on Saturday, Aug. 8, at Judd’s Hill Winery. 2332 Silverado Trail, Napa. 7:30pm. $25–$45. 707.255.2332.Gabe Meline
