The creative team includes director Don Stephenson, music director Miles Plant, choreographer Alex Sanchez, scenic designer James Morgan, lighting designer Rob Denton, costume designer Fan Zhang, sound designer Josh Liebert, and projection designer Caite Hevner. Casting is by Geoff Josselson.

The Jerusalem Syndrome explores the true psychological malady that causes over 200 tourists in Israel annually to suffer mental breakdowns, believing suddenly that they are characters from the Bible.

“This is a very funny new musical comedy and we’ve nurtured it along for a number of years. That the authors are all longtime friends of ours is particularly wonderful. We look forward to presenting it in Felicia Needleman’s memory,” said Producing Artistic Director James Morgan in an earlier statement. “Come and celebrate the holidays with us at this outrageous romp filled with hummable tunes, belly laughs and a surprising dose of hope.”
