Oy Vey

"Modern Orthodox" hits theaters.

If you have seen or plan to see this show, please submit your impressions in the comments section.

My questions, after reading the NY Times review:

1) Will non-Jews get it?

2) Will Jews get it? I don't. I don't "get" any play that has an Orthodox man who wears high tops and a Yankees yarmulke also blaming the death of his fiancee on his having taken off said yarmulke. The two do not go together.

3) Is there such a thing as a Modern Orthodox diamond trader in New York? I mean, not someone whose family lives in Belgium.

4) Who is this Daniel Goldfarb, and does he know any Modern Orthodox Jews?
