Album Notes
Rabboni Cast Recording
Music & Lyrics & Orchestrated by Jeremiah Ginsberg
Book by Jeremiah Ginsberg & Wendy Ginsberg

“Rabboni” is an original, pioneering, award-winning Gospel musical that dramatizes the life of Yeshua of Nazareth with a heart-warming “Fiddler On The Roof” flavor.

In the musical, “Rabboni,” we bring out the Jewish roots of the Gospel story by using traditional styles of Jewish music, humor and dance. This makes it unique and takes it out of the realm of the typical Gospel production.

What is exciting and different about this musical is that it dramatizes in a humorous yet Biblically accurate way the conflict between Beelzebub’s kingdom of darkness and Yeshua’s Kingdom of Light. And the Kingdom of Light wins! Despite Beelzebub’s razzle dazzle and deception from the dark side.

In 1981, Jeremiah Ginsberg produced “Rabboni” in California and won a Bronze Halo Award from The Southern California Motion Picture Council for Excellence in Family Entertainment.

Then he brought the show to New York City and produced it off-Broadway during the entire summer of 1985 to much acclaim in both the secular and Christian press.

Some Comments/Reviews:

“Ebullient joy!” - Richard F. Shepard, The New York Times
“Fabulous production! Bravo to Mr. Ginsberg, a remarkable talent! See it and you will cheer!” - Florence Stevenson, Park East News
“An Up-Tempo Captivating Success!” - The Jewish Telegraphic Agency
“The greatest portrayal of the Gospel ever to come out of the creativity of man!” - Rabbi Jerry Feldman, Congregation Adat Yeshua
“Exhilarating musical celebration! An intelligent and sensitive expression of culture! An articulate representation of dramatic music and Messianic Judaism!” - Rose Golden, The Messianic Times
“Better than Fiddler on the Roof!” - Gary Selman, of “The Two Nice Jewish Boys” Radio Show on WWDJ in New Jersey
“Great dramatic musical! One of the great keys to reaching the Jewish people! My husband and I invested in its production and we feel that many Christians need to consider doing the same!” - Gwen R. Shaw, President & Founder, End-Time Handmaidens
“Jeremiah Ginsberg [is] a faithful servant of the Lord with a special gifting and anointing to bring the Gospel to the Jewish people through his magnificent musical!” - Pearl McLane, President, Dove of Life Ministries
“I want you to know that I still remember the colorful presentation of ‘Rabboni’ off-Broadway. You had invited Howard and me to attend. I was a new Christian then and didn’t understand completely, but it was a night to remember! I hope your next performance will reach and speak to many about our amazing, gracious God! Sincerely, Virginia B., August 22, 2014. PS: Thank you!”

The music critic for The Messianic Times, Rose Golden, reviewed the Cast Recording in the Summer 1993 issue, and said:

“Jeremiah Ginsberg’s Cast Recording of Rabboni is an articulate representation of dramatic music and Messianic Judaism... It is also an intelligent and sensitive expression of culture.

“Jew and Gentile, Believer and non-Believer alike will find these [songs] a fascinating excursion into the Jewish search for Messiah and the cold-blooded war Satan has waged against man and God.

“The beautiful melodies and counter-melodies are remarkably energetic and clever. Lullabies and ballads are skillfully positioned between operatic and upbeat modern musical tunes. Hasidic Jewish rhythm and sound reverberate through the entire collection.

“Rabboni is also an astounding tapestry of diverse vocal textures and styles. Marty Goetz, with his cantorial and gentle portrayal of the Master, is juxtapositioned in O Jerusalem, Jerusalem beside Christopher Regan’s frolicking and raucous rendition of Beelzebub in The Last Days of Rome. Yeshua Messiah is sung by Tim McKanic... as you listen, you can almost hear the Jewish heart beating alongside the heart of God.

“The scope and delivery of this exhilarating musical celebration make it well worth buying.”
