THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOSH: A 28-YEAR GENTILE BAR MITZVAH

Genre: Comedy
Written and Performed by Josh Rivedal, Directed by Brent Buell

After a 60-city tour, Huffington Post columnist, playwright, performer, and international public speaker Josh Rivedal returns to New York City with The Gospel According to Josh—his autobiographical 30-character, 1-man show described as a parable, a mitzvah, and a comedy all rolled into one.

By the time he turns twenty-five, Josh thinks he’ll have had the perfect life—a few years singing on Broadway, followed by a starring role in his own television show. After which, his getaway home in the Hamptons would be featured in Better Homes & Gardens, and his face would grace the cover of the National Enquirer as Bigfoot’s not-so-secret lover. Instead, his resume is filled with an assortment of minor league theatre and an appearance on “The Maury Povich Show”—a career sidetracked by his father’s untimely death.  Tortured by his thoughts, he finds himself on the ledge of a fourth floor window, contemplating jumping out—in turn he must reach out to the only person who can help him before it’s too late.  Featuring cameos by Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr., and Elvis; The Gospel According to Josh is a comedic and poignant true-to-life tale of love, loss, struggle, and survival—a gospel account of one young man’s passage into manhood—his twenty-eight-year Gentile bar mitzvah.
