“Oy Vey in a Manger” is a musical ‘comedy’ by The Kinsey Sicks, currently playing off-Broadway:
SYNOPSIS: Touring the US & the world for 24 years, The Kinsey Sicks return Off-Broadway with a deliciously blasphemous holiday musical, as they try to sell their 2000-year-old manger before it’s foreclosed. Crises arise, Jewish-Gentile tensions surface & mayhem ensues – in outrageous drag & glorious 4-part harmony.
Oy Vey in a Manger boasts The Kinsey Sicks reinterpretations of holiday classics, such as “God Bless Ye Femmy Lesbians,” “Satan Baby”, and “I’m Dreaming of a Vanna White Christmas”, plus hilarious Jewish satiric fare, including “Don’t Be Happy, Worry,” the Chanukah spa classic “I Had a Little Facial” and, of course, the requisite and new Christmas cuisine standard, “Soylent Night.”
What better way to celebrate the biggest of Christian holidays than with parody involving Jew-centric, transvestite, drag-queen debauchery. From one number, sung in a slow and spooky dirge of horror:
Jews better watch out
Jews better not cry
Jews better not pout
I’m telling Jews why
Santa Claus is coming to town.
Celebrate diversity! It’s Weimar 2.0!
