His name is Yisrael Campbell, (the artist formerly known as Christopher), and this is his story - a spiritual journey stretching across four decades, two continents, and three circumcisions. It's that rare collision of comedy and theater that will have women howling with laughter, men squirming in their seats, and everyone standing up to cheer. Poignant, provocative, and powerfully witty, Circumcise Me is the true - and truly unforgettable - story of a man who was born to be funny.The Jewish part came later.Circumcise Me is written and performed by Yisrael Campbell and Directed by Sam Gold. An Amazing play you do not want to miss.
