The Neustadt Jewish Arts, Authors, Movies, and Music (JAAMM) Fest celebrates its 11th year with several prominent figures and inspiring works of art. Some of the high-profile Jewish guests included Oscar-winning director (and Denver native) Bryan Fogel and New York Times deputy Washington editor Jonathan Weisman.

Coinciding with the American staple’s 30th anniversary, The Simpsons producer and writer Mike Reiss will discuss life as a screenwriter, Jewish themes in the series, and his favorite Simpsons moments. Reiss will speak at the Phillips Social Hall. With tickets at $11, this event may well make you say, “Cowabunga!”

The Elaine Wolf Theater presents Wonderlab, a transcendental dance performance by the Wonderbound Dance Company. Live music from local musicians provides the soundtrack to the concert.  Tickets to Wonderlab cost $36, with performances Nov.15-18.
