Like murder mysteries and public cloning demonstrations, solo performances keep audiences wondering when the next body will appear onstage. Tap into theatrical solitude with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get two orchestra-level tickets (an $80 value) to My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish... and I'm in Therapy on Saturday, May 7 at 8 p.m. at the Garde Arts Center in New London. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

One of Broadway’s longest running solo shows, Steve Soloman’s autobiographical romp My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish... and I'm in Therapy introduces the audience to the author’s eccentric extended family in a riff that’s garnered rave reviews throughout the country. Leaping linguistically through a variety of wacky accents, sound effects, and diverse characterizations, Soloman’s expert impersonations weave a tale that excavates his own upbringing to unearth astute observations about several topics, including his mother's failings at kosher cooking.

With a recently restored Moroccan interior, the 1,472-seat theater melds classic movie-palace elegance and modern comfort. In their orchestra-level seats, show-goers sit in prime position to absorb the humor and humanity of Soloman’s show or to consciously devise their own one-man show about writing poetry inspired by professional wrestling.

Garde Arts Center

A crimson curtain rises to unveil the operas, nationally touring musicals, children's shows, and films that pass under the historic movie palace's gilded ceiling. Originally built in 1926 as a home for vaudeville performances and motion pictures, the grand venue has survived more than eight decades with the help of The Garde Arts Center, Inc., a nonprofit organization that formed in 1985 to both preserve the building and pursue its mission "to engage, enrich, entertain, and inspire the region of Greater New London." Today, the center stages a slew of performances and events that keep guests on the edges of all 1,472 seats.
