A Loose Interpretation

If you’re looking for a new lease on Passover, the Out of Order Seder is for you. Like telephones, hairdos, and nightclub soundtrack providers (have we so gently navigated from “DJ” to “Selector”?), holidays can get updated to improve their performance or just to expand on their possibilities. Perhaps you're content to chat on your rotary phone with the pigtail cord (though how you get hold of a customer service representative, we don’t know), and you’re trying to find a pencil in your beehive right now. We dig. But instead, maybe you’re looking for a little adventure. A change. Expect cocktails, an MC, and various entertainers engaging attendees with their additions to the holiday. Monologuist and Haiku Tunnel screenwriter Josh Kornbluth is among the artists on deck, as well as Iron Comic creator Nato Green. Veteran holiday rehasher and vocalist Amy Tobin, whose rock opera, The Esther Show, “reinvented the Jewish holiday of Purim,” according to her Web site, also contributes to the festivities. The evening includes the West Coast premiere of "Projecting Freedom," a collection of short films interpreting the Haggadah. No one is asking you to put down your matzo — just to consider doing something new with it.
