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

Very good play. Excellent acting. I suggested that friends go to Gloucester to see it. Comfortable theatre. Good seats for the matinee. My husband and I bought sandwiches at a shop a few doors from the theatre and ate them around the corner on benches looking out at the water. Delightful day.
