The Road to Qatar!

1st August – 26th August 2013 – C Venues, Edinburgh Festival


Two gay New York Jewish writers are commissioned to do the impossible: write a gargantuan Broadway musical for the Emir of Qatar featuring 100 British actors, 30 Qatari camels, 20 Arabian stallions, 17 fire-eating Croatian acrobats, 30 Russian ballet dancers, five falcons and Muhammad Ali. What can possibly happen? Musical Comedy breaks out in the Middle East! Unbelievable side-splitting surprises abound as the New York Jews travel from NYC to Dubai, London, Bratislava as they sing and dance their hilarious way on The Road to Qatar! Aloha Doha – you couldn’t make it up!


Nominated for an MTN award 2013 for Best Musical, Best Book, Best Lyrics and Best Music.
