About the play
This vibrant and thought- provoking musical illuminates the world of five gay male Filipino nurses in Tel Aviv who care for elderly Orthodox and Chasidic men six days a week—and headline a drag show on their day off! Based on the true story behind a 2006 Israeli documentary, the Paper Dolls is a rich, unforgettable karaoke musical about the challenges that migrant workers face while yearning for citizenship and a home. This American premiere plays as part of the 2018 Voices From a Changing Middle East Festival, and is directed by veteran Broadway director Mark Brokaw.
Generously underwritten by The Richenthal Foundation, with additional support from Debbie Goldman.
