Beau Jest at Theatre Palisades – February 2024

Recently saw “Beau Jest”,  a romantic comedy about Sarah trying to pass off a hired non-Jewish escort as her Jewish boyfriend. Sarah is a nice Jewish girl with a problem: her parents want her married to a nice Jewish boy. They have never met her boyfriend, a WASP executive named Chris Kringle. She tells them she is dating a Jewish doctor, and her parents insist on meeting him. She plans a dinner party and, over the heated protests of Chris, employs an escort service to send her a Jewish date to be Dr. Steinberg. Instead, they send Bob Schroeder, an aspiring actor who agrees to perform the impersonation. Happily, he is extremely convincing in the role and Sarah’s parents are enraptured. Soon, even Sarah falls for Bob.
This romantic comedy provided alot of laughs, was excellently acted and a first rated production. Their last performance was held on February 18th. I definitely look forward to seeing this community theatre upcoming productions.  Theatre Palisades is located in Pacific Palisades.
