The Infidel – The Musical! Judi Herman talks to Erran Baron Cohen – The Composer!
Erran Baron Cohen has just loved the process of making a musical out of David Baddiel’s hit film The Infidel. It’s the story of Mahmud, a Muslim who has to deal with the double whammy of discovering that he’s adopted and was actually born Jewish. How he copes with his identity crisis with the help of London taxi driver Lenny to give him a crash course in all things Jewish was the stuff of the funny and heart-warming film, which Baddiel and Baron Cohen have turned into The Infidel – The Musical!
Erran talks to Judi Herman about the musical and some other highlights of a career in music, sometimes shared with his brother Sacha. Their conversation ranges from Friday nights around the piano in the Baron Cohen household to the spelling of his first name...

The original film The Infidel is available on DVD.
