The Kaufman Music Center presents “Shlemiel Crooks — A Musical” at Merkin Concert Hall on Sunday, March 25, at 11 a.m. The funny family musical is based on the children’s books “Shlemiel Crooks” and “Chicken Bone Man” by Fair Lawn author Anna Olswanger. Narrated by Jerry, the family dog, and featuring a couple of dimwitted crooks named Burt and Ernie, the show is about the importance of family loyalty and the need to follow your dreams.
The theater is at 129 W. 67th St. in Manhattan. For information, call (212) 501-3330 or go to kaufmanmusiccenter.org.
