Written and Performed by Yehuda Hyman
Directed by Mara Isaacs

Premiere at McCarter Theatre

In The Mad 7, a modern day riff on a 19th Century Hasidic tale, playwright, actor and choreographer Yehuda Hyman tells the epic tale of Elliot Green, an office drone turned reluctant hero who embarks on a strange and mystical quest. In a virtuosic performance, Hyman uses music and dance as he becomes the many characters in this hilarious, offbeat and moving story of spiritual and self-discovery. Inspired by Rabbi Nachman of Breslov’s The Seven Beggars, The Mad 7 is a wild tour of the mysteries of the universe and the ecstasy of the soul.

The Mad 7 was developed in part with the support of The Karma Foundation and the Rhodopi International Theatre Collective.

REVIEWS from previous Yehuda Hyman productions 

“Hyman’s time-bending script is a modern-day fairy tale, and as in a skillfully told children’s story, there are mysterious strangers, evildoers, plot twists, a surprise ending – and wisdom to take out the door with you."
