Lady GaGa Gets the Hasidic Treatment

From the opening explosion to 360 degrees of streimels, there’s nothing less than stellar about this Yoel Brach production.

Faced with, on the one hand, overwhelming demand from Hasidic partygoers to hear the mellifluous warbling of Stefani Germanotta and, on the other, the blanket prohibition on listening to semi-naked gentile women who are writhing on stage, the band crammed the spirit of Lady GaGa into the bodies of a minyan of musicmakers (in a kosher way).

This YouTube video makes you know that Shaya and Perry had a great simcha. Mazel tov.

Hat tip to Tony Weiss for all things Hasidic.
