What a great show. Can't help but dance in your seat. Young Shlomo in particular is especially entertaining with his raw enthusiasm. I suspect this is one of many future runs on Broadway for Hayden Wall! Highly recommended. 10yrs + is best.

The cast, set, direction, choreography and musical journey make this small production a monumental explosion. The story of Shlomo Carlebach is a heartfelt story filled with humor and, of course, music. Everyone can relate to different aspects of the show. All performances were stellar but...More

Everyone can find something to relate too in this show, no matter what your faith. The dialogue is witty and the message is upbeat. I left the theater thoroughly entertained and wanting to know more about the real "Soul Doctor".

This was a moving, powerful, funny and extremely entertaining show. We had front row seats and felt part of the performance that took us through a range of emotions as it told the story of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's life, from a child in Vienna, to...More

I went to see Soul Doctor and enjoyed every minute of it. It was a great mix of soul and what seemed like kleizmer music. The story of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach and his transformation from an orthodox yeshiva boy to a rabbi who inspired thousands...More

Anyone heading to NYC now or in the future (or living there), don't miss Soul Doctor at Circle on the Square. It is a joyous production with great music, dancing and acting, plus a wonderful subliminal message. Small theater so you don't need the priciest...More

This is the story of Shlomo Carlbach. The music is wonderful. The actors are outstanding and their voices are terrific. It was fascinating to catch a glimpse of his life.

I wasn't familiar with Shlomo Carlebach's story and came away from the show learning about his life and how he touched so many with his music. Nina Simone and Sholmo were incredible. The cast, dancers and singers, were energetic and terrific. The theater, a perfect...More

Soul Doctor is a musical that is essentially a Jewish story with a timeless message. Through the story of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach we begin to see that loving one's fellow man without judging him is a beautiful thing. We learn that one day this may...More
