This one-man music and monologue show by a Jewish Scottish 50+-ish rock 'n roller is great fun. It is far from perfect; pacing and lighting/setting could have been improved and he has a serviceable singing voice. But his lyrics are poetical and his poetry is lyrical and his ability to find the funny and wise is dead on. Go!
Son of a Stand Up Comedian
By Paul Scott Goodman and Miriam Gordon

Goodman’s songs tell a story of love and hope with wry wit and uncompromising honesty, capturing the unique sights and sounds, challenges and complexities of life as a songwriter and performer in New York City.
