Beau Jest


Runs June 6 - 20

James Sherman’s warmhearted comedy "Beau Jest" tells the story of Sarah Goldman, who doesn’t think her traditional Jewish parents will respond favorably to her boyfriend, a gentile guy named Chris Cringle. So what’s a nice girl to do but create a fictional Jewish doctor as her imaginary beau and hire a male escort to play him in front of the family? The problem is, her charade is a little too successful and Sarah starts falling for the fake! This sweet romantic comedy was an off-Broadway hit and now you can enjoy it at Glenview’s Oil Lamp Theatre.
