The Black - Jew Dialogues Comes to Aquinas
February 5, 2014 - (Grand Rapids, Mich.) – The Aquinas College Programming Board, Campus Life, and the Center for Diversity & Inclusion present “The Black – Jew Dialogues.” This fast-paced, 80-minute program was written by and features Emmy award-winning performer Ron Jones and award-winning actor Larry Jay Tish. “The Black – Jew Dialogues” combines sketch comedy, improv, interactive video, and audience participation to create a hysterical and poignant journey through many of our closest held beliefs (and misbeliefs). The performers play a myriad of characters with numerous costume changes.
A significant element of the show’s success has been its treatment of sensitive, complicated issues in a uniquely engaging manner. While written as a theatre piece, Jones and Tish have been regularly asked to bring the show to colleges by students and staff alike. “We have done scores of theatre shows and will continue to do them, but the energy of the students is off the scale. We love them!” says Jones.
