    Better Lucky Than Smart

    Jonathan Kravetz' latest work is an inventive comedy full of double-crossing gangsters, dim-witted bureaucrats and extremely tidy monkeys. When his scheme to pass off old violins as Stradivarii explodes into a kidnapping plot involving the president's mistress, FBI, Mafia and the CIA, Henry, a clueless dreamer, might end up dead or worse. Will Henry's precocious, 12 year-old son Tyler or suspiciously savvy wife Jane care enough to save him? What will happen to the 5 million dollars ransom? What is that rooster doing over there? And are attractive women really flammable? Jonathan Kravetz' intense drama about a theocratic society run amok, Prayer, received universal praise ("Prayer is one of the finds of the Fringe Festival."). His play, Violins, won the Bite Size International Playwriting competition and was performed at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals in 2008 and the InGenius Festival 2010. Jonathan is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the acclaimed literary web magazine, DUCTS.ORG.
