Jew Girl #2 is a musical comedy that tells the story of a teenage girl who attends a Jewish school and dreams of being on Broadway one day. However, she feels held back by her insecurities about her weight. When her school holds auditions for a Jewish version of Hairspray, she jumps at the opportunity to take part, going after the lead role of Tracy Turnblad - a role she feels was tailor made for her.
