"The show envelops you in affection for the people of Israel"
- Tams Whitmark
The searing heat of the Negev desert and the surging streets of Tel Aviv are the unlikely backdrop to a second chance romance story between two Americans in Israel. The obstacles they face in the blush of a romance are in parallel to the obstacles faced by a young country trying to establish itself.
Starring Greg Ross (Cop Shop), Michelle Fitzmaurice (Guys and Dolls), Sophie Carter (Priscilla Queen of the Desert), Jared Newall (It's Only Life), Rose Sejean (Wrongton), Liz Stiles (Wicked) and Joseph Naim (Anyone Can Whistle), MILK AND HONEY featured the songs 'Shalom', 'Let's Not Waste A Moment' and the title song 'Milk and Honey' which was a hit for Eddie Fisher.
A rare once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the genesis of Jerry Herman's world-chaning genius, the beginning point of a career that gave us such timeless hits as 'Time Heals Everything', 'I Won't Send Roses', 'I Am What I Am', 'We Need A Little Christmas', 'It's Today', 'Put On Your Sunday Clothes', 'It Only Takes A Moment', and of course, 'Hello, Dolly!'.
