Café Named Desire
“Café Named Desire” (previously known as "Jew You Love Me?") is an original new musical about love, sexuality, and self discovery. It is a lighthearted comedy conceived by the JEWish Cabaret, following their successful productions of “Purim – Uncut!” in 2017 & early 2018.
With a refreshingly new take on the challenges of relationships, romance, and religion, ‘Jew You Love Me?’ received great reviews at its debut run in July 2018, and is sure to touch audiences near and far as we take it further.
We are currently working on taking the show forward and we will soon have exciting news to share about the musical's future!
