My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy!
One of Broadway’s longest running solo shows, My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy!—Steve Solomon’s autobiographical romp, starring Peter Fogel—introduces the audience to the author’s eccentric extended family in a riff that’s garnered rave reviews throughout the country. Leaping linguistically through various spot-on accents, sound effects, and diverse characterizations, Fogel’s affectionate impersonations of Solomon’s kin paint a portrait of an unusual home life. In excavating his own upbringing, his parent’s courtship, and his mother’s failings at kosher cooking, among other anecdotes, Solomon’s writing envelops the audience in the weird and wonderful world called family.
Acclaim for the show comes from sources including Regis Philbin, who on his morning TV show praised My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy! as “Hysterically Funny! Non Stop Laughs All The Way!”
