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

We were older members but we loved the show. You have to have an open mind and a good imagination. I thought the ideas and staging were innovative, to say the least. We had alot of laughs during and after the show. Thank you for a fun evening.

This was fun, free show, just as described: cheap, dirty and fun. Go if you like Boston jokes and um, nether regions jokes. A group of older audience members walked out in the middle of the show, so I would say it's not for a certain demographic.
Written by Boston playwright John J KIng
Directed by Barlow Adamson
Playwright and producer King says of the show’s origins: “I wanted to do a show that was a blast for the audience. When I read the novel of _The __Wizard of Oz_, I kept finding strange connections to Boston, and it’s been fun to create this tour of our city through the eyes and narrative arc of a story we all know and love. The familiarity of the tale and setting, I hope, will give the audience a lot to connect to and laugh at.”
Shortly after an unmentionable event which may or may not have filled the air, sky, and land with radiation poisoning, the play’s four heroes follow the Freedom Trail Road to the Crimson City, then go on a hunt for the Wretched Rex of the West. A Boston-set update of The Wizard of Oz, Bear Patrol is a fairy tale about a truly nuclear family.
