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

I wish I had read more about the performance beforehand so I knew better what to expect. I didn't realize it was based on her illness. Even so, I wish there had been more of the spiritual wondering that she seemed to touch on and then quickly move onto something else. Yes, her body is connected to the divine and is a "switchboard" for communicating with her creator. But she has always been drawn to the spiritual and must find the divine in other ways too. What about her ability to move beyond herself and into the human condition when she inhabits characters? Don't her children bring her closer to the divine? I wish she had explored this avenue further.
Quotes & Highlights
Watch a video preview of Mouth Wide Open.
From a Tibetan temple in Kathmandu to an evangelical church in the Mississippi Delta, from the hype of the red carpet to the cold reality of a hospital room, Brenneman is our guide on an epic journey that takes us to the place where illness and spirituality collide.
This fearless look at the ecstatic, irreverent, and sometimes excruciating dance between the sacred and the profane harnesses the intimacy of a confessional and the heightened theatricality of the stage as Brenneman tells her story with dazzling candor.
