The Jerusalem Syndrome
Book & Lyrics by Laurence Holzman & Felicia Needleman
Music by Kyle Rosen

This outrageous musical comedy is based on the real-life psychological malady which causes visitors to the Holy City to believe that they are characters from the Bible. The show was a Next Link selection in the 2008 New York Musical Theatre Festival, where it won the Theater for the American Musical Prize.  An earlier staged reading had been presented as part of the York Theatre Company's Developmental Reading series in October 2007.  Plans for a full production are in the works.  For more information, please visit
