Video: Jordan Leigh's fresh take on Adam Sandler's 'Hanukkah Song'


Actor Jordan Leigh, now appearing in DCPA Cabaret’s Forbidden Broadway: Alive & Kicking! at the Garner Galleria Theatre through March 1, debuted his new take on Adam Sandler’s cult-comedy fave Hanukkah Song when the cast appeared at the DCPA’s Holiday Box Office storefront to sing seasonal songs for patrons and passersby.

Calling his version of the song Jew.0, Leigh updates Sandler’s list of more recently famous Jewish pop-culture stars. That includes Seth Rogen, Daniel Day-Lewis and Jonah Hill. But Peyton Manning, Jewish Broncos fans? Um … Sorry, that’s a no, Leigh sings.

The DCPA Holiday Store is open in Cherry Creek North Fridays through Sundays (plus Dec. 22-23) through Dec. 23 at 2771 E. 1st. Ave. It’s a place where shoppers can be entertained by singers and storytellers, do activities, get an inside look at costumes and sets, and purchase tickets or gift certificates (with all fees waived). 

Forbidden Broadway is a comic roast of Broadway shows including “Pippin,” “Kinky Boots” and “The Book of Mormon.” The show features outrageous costumes, rewrites of popular showtunes. Call 303-893-4100 or go to www.denvercenter.org.
