Following a sold-out Off-Broadway run, SOUL DOCTOR comes to Broadway! SOUL DOCTOR is an exhilarating musical journey through the triumphs and tribulations of a cultural phenomenon. It tells the fascinating story of the father of popular Jewish music, Shlomo Carlebach, and his unlikely friendship with Nina Simone.

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.

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 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.
