My Son The Waiter - A Jewish Tragedy
April 23 - May 25, 2014
The long, long wait has been worth it. After 29 years of waiting on tables for his big break in show business in New York City, Brad Zimmerman decided that now is the time.
Produced by the same group behind “My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m In Therapy,” “RESPECT: A Musical Journey of Women” and “A Jew Grows in Brooklyn,” Zimmerman’s one-man show combines his training as an actor with years on the standup comedy circuit.
If you’ve ever longed for something; if you ever desired it with all your heart; if you were willing to wait tables for 29 years to pursue your dream, “My Son the Waiter” is for you.
This hybrid 90-minute show weaves a bittersweet tale of one man's lengthy – and we do mean lengthy – struggle in New York. His send-ups on his family, career, childhood and misbegotten love life are as warm and poignant as they are hysterical.
