Chutzpah a Go-Go[1] is a Canadian musical comedy. Written in 1994 by Randy Vancourt and David Gale, it went on to be one of the longest-running stage shows in Canadian theater history.

Runs of the show has been produced in Toronto, Winnipeg,[2] and St. Paul, Minnesota[3] In its review of the 2009 Minnesota production, the St. Paul Pioneer Press observed, "while it’s difficult to imagine it translating to large swaths of America, it resonates neatly with the Upper Midwest."[4]

Chutzpah a Go-Go tells the story of four singing actors, from the fictional Jewish town of Bubkes, North Dakota (Pop. 107). These tummlers are on the road with a musical tribute to their unique prairie Jewish heritage and some of the comic contributions that Yiddish has made to the English language. They have been mistakenly booked into a church auditorium and are using the church's musicians as their own live Klezmer band.
