Waiting for Godik chronicles the rise and fall of larger-than-life Israeli musical theatre impresario Giora Godik, one of the prominent icons of the country’s happy ’60s. Godik sought to bring the American dream to Israel through glamorous, first-rate productions of My Fair Lady, Hello, Dolly!, The King and I and the original smash hit Kazablan, among other musicals. Boasting archival recordings of these sensational productions as well as recent interviews with many Israeli theatre icons, Waiting for Godik offers a nostalgic trip through a time when Israel’s cultural boundaries were just beginning to open to the outside world.
