BAGELS! is a new musical inspired by a truly monumental event in history, the invention of the first, automated bagel machine!
For years, Ronny Kaplan has worked by his Father Izzy’s side, helping him to achieve his lifelong dream; to invent the first automated bagel-making machine. But when Ronny alone comes up with a better design, and wealthy Cousin Howard offers to invest in it over his Father’s original one, not only does it cause a big family rift, but Ronny discovers that with a not-so-kosher business partner, an upset wife and some angry bagel bakers stirring up trouble, he may have bitten off more than he can chew​.
