DELRAY BEACH, FL:  Princeton’s famous Triangle Club, the oldest touring collegiate musical-comedy troupe in the nation, will present its only South Florida performance on ThursdayFebruary 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Crest Theater at Old School Square, located at 51 North Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach.

The Triangle Show brings a unique theatrical experience to a very few locations each year and South Florida and the Crest Theatre have been selected to host this one time only performance of the company’s 2017 125th anniversary tour. Greece’d Lightning! opened in Princeton this past November to rave reviews and sold-out houses. Audiences were unanimous in their praise – citing the show as “truly wonderful and one of the best shows they have done ever… Triangle’s professional quality of original song, dance, humor, and musical composition has risen to delightful heights.”

For this landmark 125th Anniversary edition of the Triangle show, it’s all Greek – when a can-do baker from Greece’s smallest city-state tries to win the world’s first ever Olympics! But how can she compete when her sponsor is the Ruler of the Dead; she’s falling for Zeus’ athlete; and sports haven’t even been invented? From Icarus’ flight to Oedipus’ bedroom, join the greatest cast of characters Western civilization has ever known. Ending with Triangle’s famous all-male kick-line, Greece’d Lightning! will “get you to drachma like it’s hot!”

triangle_orange_logo-01For 125 years the Princeton Triangle Club has been creating professionally-produced, original student-written musicals in “The House that Triangle Built”, the renowned McCarter Theatre. In fact, The Princeton Triangle Club has the distinction of being the oldest touring (as well as the oldest co-ed) collegiate musical-comedy troupe in the United States, and the only co-ed collegiate troupe to take their show on a national tour each year.

The Triangle Club boasts a rich history and long list of alumni who have graduated to eminence in the creative arts, including F. Scott Fitzgerald ’17, Jimmy Stewart ’32, Jose Ferrer ’34, Wayne Rogers ’56, Clark Gesner ’60, Jeff Moss ’63, David Kelley ’79, Brooke Shields ’87, Wentworth Miller ’95, Ellie Kemper ’02, and Molly Ephraim ’08. The club’s seventy current members have diverse academic interests from astrophysics to economics, public policy to literature, and many plan on pursuing professional theater in some capacity.

Greece’d Lightning! offers audiences a one-time opportunity to see America’s most brilliant young minds and talents sing their hearts out and uphold a cherished musical tradition!

Greece’d Lightning! will be performed at the Crest Theatre at Old School Square on February 2nd at 7:30 pm only.  Tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for students; group rates are also available.  The Crest Theatre at Old School Square is located at 51 North Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach (33444).  Tickets may be purchased on line at www.triangleshow.com/tour-palm-beach/

MIAMI, FL:  Jake Ehrenreich will open in A Jew Grows in Brooklyn 2.0 at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center on February 2nd. But prior to that opening, he’ll visit the Miami Jewish Film festival as a special guest speaker to discuss his participation in the recent film, The Last Laugh, cinematographer Ferne Pearlstein’s fascinating look at the importance of laughter under even the most dire of circumstances.  In the film, Ehrenreich joins an ‘A’ list roster of comedians and actors, as well as several Holocaust survivors as they debate the fine line between appropriate and inappropriate humor, and whether the Holocaust and the Nazis should indeed be permissible subject for laughter.

Jake Ehrenreich

Jake Ehrenreich

Ehrenreich’s participation is a natural fit.  His show A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, and the newly revised and revamped version A Jew Grows in Brooklyn 2.0 reflect his own deeply personal feelings and experiences as the child of Holocaust survivors.  In fact, after the enormous success of the original show, and after countless interviews and related projects including films, books and personal appearances, Jake is now globally recognized as an academic expert on the Catskills, Comedy, and The Holocaust. On November 15th, 2016 he was awarded the civilian Certificate of Special Recognition from the United States Congress “in recognition of outstanding and invaluable service to the community.”

Ehrenreich will be joined on stage at the film’s screenings by Ferne Pearlstein and the movie’s producer Robert Edwards to introduce the film, and to participate in question and answer sessions after each showing.

The Last Laugh premiered at this year’s prestigious Tribeca Film Festival, and has been screened at over 50 festivals world-wide, including the Jerusalem Film Festival, the BFI London Film Festival, and the Vermont International Film Festival.  It has been called ‘compelling’ and ‘thought-provoking’, and Oliver Lyttelton of The Playlist said “…it ends up feeling like as definitive a film on comedy and the Holocaust as you could ever want.”  Some of the film’s other participants include Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Sarah Silverman, Gilbert Gottfried, Joan Rivers, and Judy Gold.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL:  Playhouse Productions’ producers Dana Matthow and Philip Roger Roy have chosen Alan Jacobson’s WaistWatchers The Musical! as the first production to play in their brand new PGA Arts Center in Palm Beach Gardens. The perennially popular musical will begin previews February 1st and run through through March 26th.

In the same energetic and fun spirit as Menopause The Musical®, WaistWatchers The Musical! – set in Cook’s Women’s Gym – takes a lighthearted look at four women ‘of a certain age’ dealing with assorted body image issues; it covers topics such as dieting, exercise, plastic surgery, and sex over the age of forty – areas of concern to women, and to men – of all ages.

“When I first wrote Waist Watchers The Musical! I was looking to create a fun show that people of all ages, backgrounds, and lifestyles could enjoy,” the show’s creator Alan Jacobson explained recently. “I couldn’t think of anything more universal and topical than food. I truly don’t know anyone who doesn’t eat it! And people sure talk about and obsess over it. What has given me the greatest satisfaction is seeing how people respond to the show,” he says, “Not only with laughter and pleasure, but how so many people identify with the struggles, and are inspired to lead healthier lives. And to me, that is what theater is all about.

“And I’m extremely excited about the direction WaistWatchers has been going in,” Jacobson continues. “I had produced it on my own for a few years quite successfully, but felt that to take it to the next level I needed to turn over the producing responsibilities to other producers…producers who shared my passion for the show, who share my vision and the direction I have always seen it going in, and who have the resources and connections to thrust it further into the national and international arena.

“Dana Matthow and Phil Roy were exactly the right producers,” he explains.  “We just finished a 40-week national tour of the show, and though very successful, we still envision greater things. Together with our director, Matt Silva, we decided we would inject the show with Vince Di Mura’s new, original music set to my existing lyrics, incorporating more variety and a style all our own, and which would free us up to be more inventive with our staging and choreography.”

The musical will exercise the considerable musical and comedic abilities of four talented actresses:  Patti Gardner as Carla, Krissy Johnson as Cheryl, Stephanie Genovese as Cindy, and Valerie DiLorenzo as Connie.

Matt Silva will direct the production; the show’s musical director is Emily Whitaker, and choreography will be handled by Dani Tucci-Juraga.

Waist Watchers The Musical! will run from January 25 – March 26 at the PGA Center for the Arts.  The theatre is located at 4076 PGA Boulevard, in Palm Beach Gardens (33410).

Tickets for WaistWatchers The Musical! are $40-$65. Group rates (12 or more) are also available. Tickets may be purchased on line at http://waistwatchersthemusical.com or by phone at 855-448-7469.  For group rates call 888-264-1788.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL:  Palm Beach Gardens will add live theatre to its ever-growing cultural landscape when the PGA Arts Center opens its doors in late January.  Veteran producers Philip Roger Roy and Dana Matthow have taken a multi-year lease on the PGA Cinemas, located at 4076 PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens, and are in the process of converting two of the building’s six auditoria to accommodate live productions. The two theatres will seat 260 and 280 patrons respectively.  They plan to adapt a third space – which will seat approximately 160, and be available for rentals – within the next year.

Roy and Matthow are lifelong friends and have been producing partners for well over 20 years.  Together they run the popular Penn’s Landing Playhouse in Philadelphia (http://plplayhouse.com). They also produce shows in Arlington, MA, Providence RI, George St. Playhouse in NJ, Chicago, Phoenix, Sacramento, Walnut Creek CA, San Jose, San Diego, Huntington Beach CA, Los Angeles, Denver, Boulder, New Hope PA, and other cities throughout the United States and Canada.

“Dana and I have both owned theatres throughout our lives,” Roy explained recently. “Dana owned the Soho Playhouse in New York City’s Greenwich Village for 10 years.  My first venue was a coffeehouse on the campus of Kenyon College in 1971. It was called Ma & Pa Eclectic & Son’s International House of Chutzpah. I later shortened the name to Grendel’s Lair Cabaret TheaterI opened another cabaret theater in Philadelphia in 1972, also called Grendel’s Lair which I ran for 15 years producing theatrical shows & music events.

“Our production company controls the rights to several Off Broadway shows which we produce in 18 markets throughout the USA and Canada.” Roy continued. “With so much ‘product’, we are always looking for new theaters to play. The most challenging part of our jobs is to find theaters we can rent. As a result it was only natural for us to jump at the opportunity to rent a theater (and in the case of the PGA Arts Center – two theaters in one building!) in one of our most receptive markets – South Florida. Our niche has always been Off Broadway comedies and musicals. We hope to bring year-round professional theater to the Palm Beach market with (mostly) shows never seen here before.”

The PGA Arts Center’s first production – projected to open for previews on January 25th – will be WaistWatchers The Musical!, local playwright Alan Jacobson’s ever-popular light-hearted look at four women dealing with food, friendship, love, life, and sex. The show will have all new music to go with its clever and funny lyrics. Brad Zimmerman’s My Son the Waiter:  A Jewish Tragedy, which is currently playing at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center in Boca Raton, will begin a limited run in the second theatre on February 2nd.

The PGA Arts Center is located at 4076 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410. Ample parking is available within close proximity to the theatre.

For more information about the PGA Arts Center, Philip Roger Roy and/or Dana Matthew, please contact Carol Kassie at carol@carolkassie.com at 561-445-9244 or Jennifer Sardone-Shiner at jen16sardone@aol.com / 561-891-7278.

THE MOST HAPPY FELLA at Stage Door Theatre – December 30 – February 5

fella-logo-1-jpg-stDecember 30 – February 5

“Music in “Fella” isn’t just ornament; it’s oxygen, the way it is in operas by Puccini, Strauss, and even Wagner. The score itself keeps wordlessly defining the characters, pushing them and us forward to new awareness.”  Ben Brantley ~ New York Times 

December 27, 2016

MARGATE, FL:  Stage Door Theatre will follow their recent hit production of Sweet Charity with Frank Loesser’s award-winning musical The Most Happy Fella.  The production will open on December 30th, and run through February 5th in the theatre’s larger auditorium.

Loesser (Guys and Dolls, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) based this touching, dramatic, and intensely personal love story of a May-December romance between an aging Italian grape farmer and a much younger woman on the play They Knew What They Wanted by Sidney Howard. He read the play in 1952 and felt it had ‘musical potential’; however, it took him four years to complete the musical, which opened on Broadway on May 3, 1956.

Andy RogowThe Most Happy Fella isn’t a title that is as familiar to audiences as others from the Golden Age of musical theatre, though it has several very famous songs such as “Standing on the Corner”, “My Heart is So Full of You”, “Somebody, Somewhere”, and “Big D”,” says the production’s Carbonell Award-winning director, Andy Rogow.   “What makes this show so interesting to me is that it really is an opera. There are few dialogue scenes so the story progresses through one lush musical number to the next. I often get goosebumps listening to the cast sing through the score. They sound gorgeous.”

In his book The World of Musical Comedy, Stanley Green noted that the musical is “one of the most ambitiously operatic works ever written for the Broadway theatre.” And Loesser said “I may give the impression this show has operatic tendencies. If people feel that way – fine. Actually all it has is a great frequency of songs. It’s a musical with music.”

shay-weinbergShay Weinberg plays the show’s female lead, Rosabella: “She’s a tough yet romantic, girl next door who is not trapped in the bindings of an ingénue role,” Weinberg says.  “Rosabella is a blast to play. I love that I get to be a soprano and indulge in a strong character complex.”

Other cast members include  Kyle Yampiro as Tony, Kyle Pressley as Joey, Lisa Franklin as Marie, Dean Landhuis as Doc, Ellington Berg as Herman, and Kimberly Abrams as Cleo.

The Most Happy Fella Trivia Note:  The original production was partially bankrolled by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.  The 1957 I Love Lucy episode “Lucy’s Night In Town” focuses on the Ricardos and Mertzes going to a sold-out performance of The Most Happy Fella. Three songs from the show are heard in scenes showing the characters sitting in the theater. At one point Fred Mertz is inspired by the show’s title to remark, “The guy is not married!”

The Most Happy Fella will run from December 30 – February 5 at Stage Door Theatre. The theatre is located at 8036 Sample Road, in Margate.

Tickets for The Most Happy Fella are $38 – $42; $16 student tickets are also available.  Tickets may be purchased at the Broward Stage Door Theatre box office at 954-344-7765 or on line at  www.stagedoorfl.org

The South Florida Premiere of
use_seerockcity_logo-stroke
January 13 – 29
(Preview Performance – January 12)

December 21, 2016

BOCA RATON, FL:  Evening Star Productions will present the South Florida premiere of Brad Alexander and Adam Mathias’ award-winning contemporary musical, See Rock City and Other Destinations, at Sol Theatre in Boca Raton, from January 13 – 29, 2017. (There will be a preview performance on January 12 at 8 pm.)

With a book full of humor and humanity, and a score that incorporates pop, rock, folk and more, each of the musical’s loosely linked stories builds on the last to create a vivid travelogue of Americans learning to overcome their fears and expectations in order to connect:

A wanderer believes his destiny is written on rooftops along the North Carolina Interstate; a young man yearns to connect with intelligent life in Roswell, New Mexico; a woman at the Alamo steps out of the shadow of her grandparents’ idealized romance to take a chance on love; three estranged sisters cruise to Glacier Bay to scatter their father’s ashes; two high school boys face unexpected fears in the Coney Island Spook House; and a terrified bride-to-be ponders taking the leap… over Niagara Falls.

See Rock City & Other Destinations won the 2011 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical and was nominated for Outstanding Lyrics, Outstanding Music, Outstanding Direction, Outstanding Lighting, and Outstanding Musical. The musical also received the 2007 Jerry Bock Award and the 2008 Richard Rodgers Award for Excellence in Musical Theatre Writing.

Rosalie GrantEvening Star’s Artistic Director Rosalie Grant chose Geoffrey Short to direct the production: “While designing Evening Star’s 4th season I felt it was important to bring a variety of creativity to the table,” she explains. “I’d had several discussions with Geoffrey Short over the past year, and having witnessed his work as actor and director, I felt he would be a perfect fit to direct for Evening Star.  Geoffrey knew instantly he wanted to bring See Rock City to Sol Theatre and Evening Star … it felt like a perfect fit of cast size, instrumentation and story for Sol’s intimate setting.  And from what I’m hearing from the cast as they navigate these early rehearsals it truly is a perfect fit!”

geoff-short-headshot-3“I was immediately charmed by See Rock City and Other Destinations when I first saw it performed at Baldwin Wallace University in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio in 2010,” says director Short .  “It’s an award-winning show about journeys and destinations. Highways and pilgrimages. The heart and spirit of the show is that it’s an intimate musical driven by the theme of travelling to tell stories that speak to anyone who has loved, lost or searched for more meaning in their lives. Its themes are truly universal.  It’s funny and touching with an incredible contemporary score that I’m so excited to share in its South Florida regional premiere at Evening Star Productions. I’m sure audiences will be as charmed with See Rock City and this incredible cast of storytellers as I have been.”

See Rock City and Other Destinations will feature Yasmin Adli, Chris Alvarez, Chris D’Angelo, Robert Fritz, Jeanine Gangloff, Murphy Hayes, and Mariah Jimenez.

Anthony Campisi will serve as the production’s Musical Director; Scenic Art is by Katie McVay, Lighting Design is by Geoffrey Short, who co-designed the set with Ardean Landhuis.

See Rock City and Other Destinations will run from January 13 – 29 at Sol Theatre in Boca Raton. (There will be a preview performance on January 12 at 8 pm.) Tickets are $30 and $15 for students and seniors. Group rates are also available. Tickets are on sale now, and can be purchased  by calling 561-447-8829 or on line at www.eveningstarproductions.org.

jake-rockBOCA RATON, FL:  Jake Ehrenreich, playwright, author and academically recognized expert on Comedy, Catskills and the Holocaust, will present a completely updated version of his beloved autobiographical comedy musical A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, when A Jew Grows in Brooklyn 2.0 opens at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center in Boca Raton for a limited four week run from February 2 – 26. This production will be followed by an additional five performances at the Coral Springs Performing Arts Center from March 10-12.

This new incarnation of the show, co-directed by Jon Huberth and Lisa Ehrenreich, further explores how Ehrenreich, who grew up in Brooklyn in the 1960’s-70’s, struggled with his family’s survivor history, and later with both his sisters and mother’s early Alzheimer’s disease – “and how we all must handle our individual challenges in life.” The production makes use of extensive multi-media, music and comedy to entertainingly convey its uplifting message. Ehrenreich’s extraordinary tour de force performance, filled with laughter, tears and first class musicianship, resonates with audiences of all ages.
_mg_2460-at-piano-w-tie“I wanted to tell a very serious story – but make it accessible with as much joy and laughter and music as possible”. Ehrenreich has explained.

He has appeared on Broadway in Dancin’, Barnum and They’re Playing Our Song and toured internationally as Ringo in Beatlemania. He has performed and recorded with such diverse artists as Richie Havens, Greg Allman, Whitney Houston, Tito Puente, Jay Leno, and the Smothers Brothers.

A full-length book, A Jew Grows in Brooklyn: The Curious Reflections of a First Generation American was Published by HCI – (Chicken Soup for the Soul), in 2010. Ehrenreich has recorded a CD Yiddish Unplugged, and is currently taping a TV variety show debuting in 2017.

Praise for Jake Ehrenreich and A Jew Grows in Brooklyn:

The New York Times compared Ehrenreich to Billy Crystal and Bill Murray,  and raved: A Jew Grows in Brooklyn is “funny – beautiful – affectionate…touching joy and sorrow experiences lie behind and beneath every anecdote and joke.”

The Philadelphia Inquirer called the show “A universally uplifting treasure – in the same elevated company as Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays, and Chaz Palminteri’s A Bronx Tale.”

The Los Angeles Times weighed in on the entertainment as well as the cultural importance of the show: “Ehrenreich is an engaging and thoughtful raconteur who weaves philosophy into personal history – his insight into the legacy of the classic Borscht Belt entertainers is elegant in its simplicity.”

DANNY KAYE AND SYLVIA: A MUSICAL LOVE STORY – at the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park – January 13 – 29

“I am a wife-made man.” ~ Danny Kaye

December 15, 2016
BOCA RATON, FL:  Danny Kaye was world famous as a star of Vaudeville, theatre, film, and television; Sylvia Fine was his primary songwriter, his mentor, his motivator, and his wife.  These two – each strong and fascinating personalities in their own right – are the subjects of Danny Kaye and Sylvia:  A Musical Love Story, which will open at the Willow Theater in Boca Raton’s Sugar Sand Park on January 13th, and run through January 29th.   The show has played to sold out houses in London, New York, and Washington, D.C.

The young, undisciplined comic Danny Kaminsky met aspiring songwriter Sylvia Fine at an audition for The Straw Hat Review in 1939. (Fine had written the music and lyrics for the show). After a whirlwind courtship they were married in Ft. Lauderdale in January 1940; under Sylvia’s guidance, Danny Kaye rose from an impoverished improvisational comic to become an international star.

Larry Buzzeo and Katie Angell Thomas will reunite to play Danny

Kaye and Sylvia Fine – their performances in  The Jazz Singer, were lauded by audiences and critics alike.  This will be the second show mounted by Black Box Booking and Hy Juter. Their January 2016 production of the aforementioned production, The Jazz Singer, sold out every performance at the Willow Theatre.

“If Danny Kaye had not been born,” a Hollywood writer once observed, “no one could possibly have invented him, it would have been stretching credibility far past the breaking point.”  Kaye was a virtuoso entertainer – an actor, a singer, a dancer, a comedian and a clown. He won two honorary Oscars, an Emmy, a Peabody Award, a Golden Globe, the French Legion of Honor, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  Kaye was a licensed pilot (in 1979 he made the Guinness Book of Records by piloting a private jet to 65 cities in the U.S. and Canada in 5 days), a gourmet chef, and a symphony conductor – although he could not read a note of music. And he was the first Good Will Ambassador to UNICEF.

Sylvia Fine was a gifted writer, producer, pianist, lyricist, and Oscar-nominated composer in her own right. She wrote many of Kaye’s best known songs and sketches and contributed numerous pieces to Kaye’s various movies, radio, and television programs.

Danny Kaye and Sylvia: A Musical Love Story, written by Robert McElwaine, includes a number of Kaye’s most famous songs – many of them written by Fine – including ‘Tchaikovsky’, ‘Balling the Jack’, and ‘Anatole of Paris’. McElwaine and Kaye met when McElwaine worked as director of advertising and publicity at the Goldwyn Studios in the 1950s; he subsequently became the star’s publicist and confidant for 20 years.  Danny Kaye and Sylvia explores the romance, the talent, and conflict that made them such a successful – and volatile couple.

The show’s director, Larry K. Bramble has also designed the set and the lighting for the production.  Musical direction is by Annaliesa Trethewey, sound design by Jason Hesler, and costumes are by Mary Ellen Many.

Danny Kaye and Sylvia will run from January 13 through January 29 at the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park.  Tickets are $35; group rates (6 or more tickets purchased in one transaction) are $30.  Tickets can be purchased on line at http://www.willowtheatre.org/danny-and-sylvia   or by phone at 561-347-3948.

“Las Vegas looks the way you’d imagine heaven must look at night.”
– Chuck Palahniuk, in “Invisible Monster”

November 29, 2016

MARGATE, FL:  From Soul to Swing, Kevin Black’s recent productions – created exclusively for Stage Door Theatre – have had audiences on their feet and dancing.  The Soul of Motor City, his tribute to the music of Motown, which was extended several times over this past summer, and Swing! Swing! Swing! his lovingly assembled compendium of Jazz and Swing classics were both recommended for Carbonell nominations.

Black’s newest creation, Vegas: A Night on the Strip will premiere at Stage Door on December 9th, and run through January 22nd.

Vegas: A Night on the Strip dives into the rich history that made the city of Las Vegas a hot destination for entertainers from around the world.  Featuring music from some of Vegas’ most memorable icons – from the Rat Pack and Elvis to the modern-day Cirque-type spectacles; from showgirls to headliners; from high-rollers to high-flying acrobatics…  “with maybe a Vegas wedding thrown in!” says Black.

“When most people think of Vegas, they immediately remember the likes of Frank, Sammy, and Dean…The Rat Pack,” Black continues.  “However, Vegas: A Night on the Strip is so much more. I decided to tell the history of ‘The Entertainment Capitol of The World’, through the construction and implosion of those iconic hotels on The Strip, and the entertainment that graced their stages. Our six vocalists pay tribute to this great city with nods to numerous Vegas icons – not only the Rat Pack, but legends like Celine Dion, Elton John, Tom Jones and Wayne Newton, and the lavish cirque -style shows that dominate The Strip today.

“The creative “workshop” process is my favorite,” Black explains when asked about the evolution of the production. “Arranging new ways to present some old classics and seldom heard gems is so satisfying. Our Musical Director/Arranger Ben Bagby is a master at this and you’ll see his work shine more than ever in this show.”

The six vocalists Black has chosen to bring his vision of Vegas to life are Daniel Bourgoin, Jar’Davion Brown, Arlene Coutee, Chantal Deshaies, Gabrielle Graham, and Brad Rakushin.  Brown and Graham both wowed audiences in The Soul of Motor City.  Brad Rakushin was featured in Stage Door’s recent productions of Sisters of Swing and I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.  Specialty artists Cherrise Pawlak and Derick Pierson round out the cast of eight.

Vegas: A Night on the Strip will run from December 9 – January 22 at Stage Door Theatre. The theatre is located at 8036 Sample Road, in Margate.

Tickets for Vegas: A Night on the Strip are $38 – $42; $16 student tickets are also available.  Tickets may be purchased at the Broward Stage Door Theatre box office at 954-344-7765 or on line at  www.stagedoorfl.org

MY SON THE WAITER: A JEWISH TRAGEDY at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center December 15 – January 29

Actor/Comedian Brad Zimmerman’s hilarious and inspiring story
about the grit and passion required to ‘make it’ as an artist and the sweet rewards that come from never giving up on your dream. 

 

November 18, 2016

BOCA RATON, FL:  Brad Zimmerman will return to South Florida this season in his highly praised autobiographical comedy, My Son the Waiter:  A Jewish Tragedy.  The show will run from December 15th through January 29th at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center in Boca Raton.

My Son the Waiter:  A Jewish Tragedy is the story of Zimmerman’s struggle to fulfill his dream and ‘make it’ as a comedic actor in New York.  One-part standup, one-part theatrical, and all parts uproarious My Son the Waiter:  A Jewish Tragedy has garnered rave reviews wherever it has played, including sold out runs at the Northshore Theatre in Skokie, Illinois, and the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick, New Jersey, this past summer.

Every mother dreams her children will grow up to be happy, healthy, and successful.  Every Jewish mother secretly – and often not so secretly –  adds specifics to her wish:  A doctor, a lawyer, a dentist, or these days, a Silicon Valley tycoon would make her very happy.  Brad Zimmerman’s mother has finally adapted to her ‘actor-waiter’ son’s career choice and financial situation: “If all goes well, I think Brad is going to buy a bookcase,” she boasts to her friends.
brad_zimmermanBrad Zimmerman has paid his dues.  He spent 29 years “temporarily” waiting tables in New York, all the while chasing a career in acting and comedy.  He tells of his pursuit, along with stories about his childhood, family, and misbegotten love life with warmth, wit, self-deprecating humor, and wicked charm, and combines his years of training as an actor with his innate comedic talent.

And of course Zimmerman also examines the trials and tribulations of waiting on tables – particularly for someone not exactly invested in that career, and with little tolerance for persnickety diners:

“I don’t want 60 questions, get to the point!” he said he would tell restaurant patrons when he sat down for a recent interview for The New York Times. He joked that if diners prefaced their orders by saying they were in a hurry he would say “So go!” He says he did enjoy some of the bantering he did with diners, and often tried out material on them, however there were also ‘the bossy customers who would snap their fingers to get his attention… and the health-food obsessives who elaborately customized their orders and button-holed him over ingredients.’  As he says in My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy, he was convinced his epitaph would read “I’ll be right with you.”

His perseverance and hard work eventually did pay off, and Zimmerman went on to act – he had a small part in “The Sopranos” playing Johnny Sack’s lawyer – and to become the opening act for a number of well-known entertainers, including George Carlin, Brad Garrett, Dennis Miller, Julio Iglesias, and Joan Rivers who said “I’ve had three great opening acts in my lifetime:  Billy Crystal, Garry Shandling, and Brad Zimmerman.”

Zimmerman worked on the script for My Son the Waiter:  A Jewish Tragedy for 9 years and performed it in small venues all over the country, including a stint at Stage Door Theatre in Margate, where it came to the attention of producers Dana Matthow and Philip Roy (Respect: A Musical Journey of Women, Old Jews Telling Jokes, My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy). Since then My Son the Waiter:  A Jewish Tragedy spent 2 years at Off-Broadway’s Stage 72 at the Triad Theatre in New York, and has toured the USA from coast to coast, including a very successful run at The Palm Beaches Theatre in Manalapan last season.

My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy will run from December 15th – January 29th at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center in Boca Raton.  Tickets are on sale now, and are available on line at MySonTheWaiter.com or by phone at 844-448-7469.  For group rates (12 +) call 888-264-1788.  Tickets for My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy range from $40 – $65.

“Zimmerman is a funny man with funny material.” ~ Thomas Burns Scully (On Stage)
