After hundreds of sold-out performances on Broadway and across the world, Soul Doctor comes to the big screen in this uplifting musical journey that the New York Times called, "INSPIRING AND ABSORBING! A fascinating story with beautiful music." The movie musical, which was filmed live in Jerusalem, is a poignant and entertaining portrayal of how music and spirituality formed an unlikely friendship between rockstar Rabbi, Shlomo Carlebach and legendary singer and activist, Nina Simone. Together their music woke up the world and brought to light the common struggles of the black and Jewish communities that still continue today. Soul Doctor is a tribute to Nina Simone's enormous influence on the revival of Jewish music and the power of music to unite, uplift, and bring people together. "Combine FIDDLER ON THE ROOF with JERSEY BOYS, add some HAIR, and you get a taste of SOUL DOCTOR," says Bloomberg News. You won't be able to resist singing along in this joyous musical celebration!
