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

“An extraordinary memoir and a harrowing narrative that rivals anything in The Last Emperor.” —The Wall Street Journal
China, at the heart of the 20th Century, became a nation transformed beyond recognition. Through the eyes of one fiercely courageous family, Wild Swans takes us on a journey from the early days of Communist hope and struggle, through the chaos and confusion of Mao’s Cultural Revolution, to the birth of a superpower. An astonishing human story, _ Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China_ has sold more than 13 million copies in 36 languages. This first ever stage version brings together author Jung Chang with playwright Alexandra Wood, director Sacha Wares, designer Miriam Buether and Beijing video artist Wang Gongxin.
The show runs 90 minutes, no intermission and is recommended for ages 12 and older.
