Three Performances Only!    

The Weekend of June 17, 18, 19, 2022, Lisner Auditorium, Washington, DC


Washington, DC, April 15, 2022….Jeremiah Theatricals is pleased to announce a special presentation of Messiah The Musical In Concert at the Lisner Auditorium on the George Washington University Campus in Washington, DC, Friday through Sunday, June 17- 19, 2022.

Messiah The Musical In Concert begins with Mendel Moskowitz alone in his Brooklyn apartment, praying to God in song. Not getting an immediate answer, he falls asleep. What then unfolds is a fantastical journey! Set to a gorgeous Broadway-style score, Yeshua (Jesus in Hebrew) takes Mendel on a whirlwind tour back in time to Ancient Jerusalem where he meets the Disciples as well as the buffoonish Beelzebub and the Demons.

A dramatic, sometimes hilarious battle between good and evil ensues not only for Mendel but also between Yeshua and Beelzebub. Yeshua is triumphant over Beelzebub, death and hell. And Mendel is transformed from questioning the meaning and significance of his life to being filled with inspiration, hope and joy!

With uplifting universal appeal, with the epic quality of a "Fiddler On The Roof" or a "Les Miserables" and with exquisite music comparable to Gershwin or Richard Rodgers, Messiah The Musical In Concert brings the Gospel story gloriously alive on stage!



Three performances will be held at The Lisner Auditorium in Washington, DC:

*    Friday at 7:30 pm

*    Saturday at 7:30 pm

*    Sunday, 3 pm matinee with private VIP invitation-only reception to follow.



Tickets available for orchestra and terrace seating. Special rates for groups, seniors, and students. Buy tickets now at InstantSeats! Here's the link to InstantSeats: 



When the Ginsberg's first produced this musical off-Broadway in 1985 under the original title of Rabboni, the critics raved!

"Ebullient joy!" - Richard F. Shepard, The New York Times

"An Up-Tempo, Captivating Success! - The Jewish Telegraphic Agency

"Exhilarating musical celebration!" - Rose Golden, The Messianic Times

"Better than Fiddler on The Roof!" - Gary Selman, Two Nice Jewish Boys Radio on WWDJ

"The greatest portrayal of the Gospel ever to come out of the creativity of man!" - Messianic Rabbi Jerry Feldman, Congregation Adat Yeshua

"There is not a more beautiful love story in the history of the world than the Gospel," says Jeremiah Ginsberg. "We delight in bringing this magnificent age-old story to life, to dramatize God's love for humanity through the musical theatre art form."

Esther De Pommery, Countess of Lambrey, a Swiss activist and founder of Esther de Pommery Comtesse de Lambrey Foundation, is the Honorary Chair of Messiah The Musical In Concert.

"When God gave His only Son for our salvation, He did it out of love," says Countess Esther de Pommery. "In these trying times, we forget the meaning of that sacrifice. I'm very excited to support my dear friends, the Ginsbergs, who use the medium of musical theater to remind us of what it means to love. The world needs this now more than ever."
