The Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale shines the spotlight on Sheba Mason -- the self-proclaimed lovechild of comedian Jackie Mason -- as she stars in The Jackie Mason Musical: Both Sides of a Famous Love Affair. This comedic chronicle looks at the decade-long tryst between the comedy icon and Sheba's mother, playwright Ginger Reiter. It all begins at a deli in Miami in 1977, where 46-year-old Jackie spots twenty-something Ginger (played by Sheba). Soon, Jackie's wooing her each winter, whenever he's in South Florida churning up laughs with the South Beach set. The trouble is, Jackie is also wooing Trixie, a gorgeous young Latina, and Rosa, a senior citizen with attitude, a fact that sends Ginger into romantic distress. After 10 years, she becomes pregnant, Jackie denies his paternity, while still yearning to be with her, and a complicated relationship begins. Watch as original songs like Ode to the Early Bird Special" and "I Never Met This Yenta" pepper Sheba's major daddy issues.
