A Cracker Barrel Chanukah. Oy vey!
I've heard of The Feldman Dynamic, but have never had the pleasure.
If you're in the same boat, you can remedy that situation with a visit to "Cracker Barrel Old Country Chanukah," a "site-specific" performance piece being performed at a number of Cracker Barrel restaurants around Orlando.
Jewish humor and treyf! What a combo.

Cracker Barrel® Old Country Chanukah marks the debut of Orlando Jewish Theater, whose mission is to produce innovative arts programming that exists on the periphery of the American Jewish experience, and which always raises more questions than answers. Upcoming Inaugural Season events include Kiss Me, I'm Jewish (4/20+21/09) and The Diary of Anne Frank (6/11-13/09). Follow us @ http://twitter.com/OrlandoJewish.
