Just For Us, written by and starring Alex Edelman, runs at Williamstown Theatre Festival August 3-6. The show recently completed its third Off-Broadway run at Greenwich House Theater July 23, following its runs at Cherry Lane Theatre and SoHo Playhouse.
Directed by Adam Brace, the stand-up comedian's solo show features stories from Edelman's life such as tales about his brother AJ, an Olympian athlete, and having an unconventional holiday season. At the core of the show, however, is Edelman's personal experiences with anti-Semitic abuse, his decision to crash a New York City gathering of White Nationalists incognito, and the aftermath of that encounter.
First presented in 2018 at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Just For Us then transferred to London's Soho Theater and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, earning a Barry Award nomination and the Herald Angel Award along the way. Mike Birbiglia serves as producer.
