My Son the Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy tells the humor-filled and heartwarming tale of actor-comedian Brad Zimmerman, whose 29-year quest to build a performing career is supported by a "temporary" job in the restaurant industry. Zimmerman, who's opened for Joan Rivers, George Carlin and Brad Garrett, shares stories of his oft-hilarious family, career and none-too-successful love life in this one-man show that's played to appreciative audiences across the country. You might also recognize him from The Sopranos, where he played Johnny Sack's lawyer -- so at least he could say he met his parents' expectations, even if it was as a fictional character. Learn More

My almost-4 year-old daughter had a great time. Overall, she and I both enjoyed it. The actors sing and dance well. My daughter particularly liked the number featuring the young actor playing Frog as a little frog in his youth. Despite the slightly tense moment when he faces the "Large and Terrible Frog", that proved to be my daughter's favorite, or most memorable moment of the play. That, and the comic relief by the snail delivering the mail.

These themes are played out in such a way as to appeal to both children and adults. This is not a kitschy show.
