Daddy Act (Video)

15   |  
Daddy Act is a story that appeals to ages 6 to 120.

A comedy about a man who means well but seems to get everything wrong. Living with his in laws as he has recently lost his wife, he loses his job because of his newly discovered Jewish principles and after throwing a Purim party in his in laws home he loses also his kids when the courts give custody to the grandparents until he can hold down a job, run his own home and stop teaching the kids about Yiddishkeit.
Desperate to see his children every day the father dresses up as a housekeeper and is hired by his unsuspecting mother in law.
From then on it is fast paced and incredibly funny as he gets into the most complicated situations, the climax being an invitation to the same restaurant for his son's birthday as the family housekeeper and at the same time for a dinner meeting by his boss, as himself.
It is funny, it is very moving and extremely inspiring.
The dancing and gymnastics are brilliant, the singing gorgeous, the costumes stunning and the stage has set a new league.
Best of all is the professional level of the acting - you will adore the many colorful characters in the cast - an eccentric teacher, a formidable social worker, a one of a kind older brother, an elegant grandmother and the sweetest grandpa in town.
Watch this story and you will be hoping all the way through that there will be a happy ending for Daniel and his three adorable kids.

Daddy Act is a video that will be watched again and again and again.

This show RAISES THE BAR for theatrical performances - the LED screens are super-professional, along with the genuinely side-splitting comedy and the high-energy musical numbers like "Impossible Children" etc.!



I was invited to go to see Daddy Act live. I didn't have high hopes from a new production but I left the theater on an absolute high. The story itself is a one of a kind. The phenomenal  scenery, fabulous songs and awesome dances just took my breath away. I don't usually have patience to sit through musicals but I have the DVD now and I'm warning you - it's addictive. This show has it all.

Best Jewish show ever!

If you missed this show on stage (which is obviously the best way to have seen it, live, this DVD is a good substitute. The amazing digital LED sets are worth seeing in themselves, the story is heartbreaking and funny all at once, and of course the songs are brilliant. Yes I know I wrote the lyrics, but even so! Daddy Act is extremely well acted and produced and will be something you'll enjoy watching over and over again. The star, Avigayil Hool, (my daughter but I am not biased in the least) is an amazing comic actress and here she has a real chance to shine.

One of the Best Plays EVER (but I'm not objective...)

I loved this show so much! Ok, I was in it so maybe I'm not objective. BUT, here is why I was so crazy about it and willing to be in it: It's got a great story line. It's engaging. The actresses are wonderful and incredibly talented; the characters are colorful; the songs and dances are very well performed. The best part is the HUMOR. It's LOL funny. But it's also very moving. You don't have to believe me, but this is really one of the best plays I have ever seen! AND the lyrics to all the songs were written by renowned author Ruthie Pearlman (who has a bit part) and each and every song is a gem. It was a privilege to be part of the ensemble that performed Daddy Act. Dena Gottlieb aka "Michael" (We've Got the Skills)


Honest Review - Not professional

If you are looking for a on the stage "high school - type play"- this is a good video But if you are looking for a very PROFESSIONAL video- this is NOT the video for you!
