Purim is the Jewish holiday that’s often celebrated by donning crazy costumes and consuming insane amounts of wine. So it’s ripe for parody. The Hub at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco and local sketch group Killing My Lobster saw the potential and created The Whole Megillah 2. Directed by The Hub’s Dan Wolf, the joint performance features sketch comedy, live music, and hilarious short films to commemorate the holiday. Of working with Killing My Lobster, Wolf says, “We were thrilled by the idea of collaborating to produce something unique, hilarious, and with just the right amount of irreverence.” For a holiday that’s earned the nickname “Pour ’em,” we can’t think of a better combination. For those of you who like a little nosh with your laughs, free Hamantaschen from Wise Sons Deli are included. L’chaim!
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: March 2. Continues through March 10, 2012
