Manchester Jewish Museum has revealed details of a surprise sixth show as part of the venue’s Synagogue Nights season.

Joining the previously announced lineup, on Thu 9 Nov, will be multi-award-winning Kiwi/Candian/Jewish comedienne, Deb Filler.

Filler has been working as an actor, character artist, singer, comic and writer for 30 years, with a catalogue that includes A Handmaid’s Tale, Shark Lords and being the star and playwright of Broadway hit, Punch Me In The Stomach.

In Kravitz, Cohen, Bernstein & Me, Filler strikes a unique blend of storytelling and music, shaped by (mostly) true stories of eclectic characters from her past.

Swinging effortlessly between deeply humorous and incredibly poignant, the show tells a story of empowering our true selves, and embracing both music and the eternal impact of those who mentor us.

Filler joins an already incredible lineup in Manchester Jewish Museum’s stunning 1874 Spanish & Portuguese synagogue, one which spans music, comedy and film.

Elsewhere in the programme, Fran & Flora channel melodies of Klezmer, Transylvanian, Romanian, Greek and Armenian music, while Journeys into Jewish Song with James Nissen takes the audience on a voyage of discovery into songs from across the Jewish diaspora.

Following on from last year’s sold-out show, the Noga Ritter Trio return to the venue, Becoming Nigella is a funny, heartwarming and hunger-inducing new musical in concert and OUT OF EXILE: The Photography of Fred Stein explores the fascinating life of Fred Stein and his acclaimed photographic work.
