An over-the-top celebration of Broadway’s Jews

The poster for You Won’t Succeed on Broadway if You Don’t Have Any Jews displays the show’s title in the flashy marquee spotlights you’d come to expect from a production celebrating the best of Broadway. Front and center though, in huge boldface letters, is emphasis on “Jews.” Those four letters, which dwarf the rest of the words, seems unnecessarily exaggerated.

Unfortunately, the poster ultimately is a symbol of the tone of the production itself – well meaning, with its heart in the right place, but forcefully driving home the point that, hey, this is all about THE JEWS and not really about the amazing work they have done.
