The international hit comedy MY MOTHER’S ITALIAN, MY FATHER’S JEWISH & I’M IN THERAPY!, featuring Peter J. Fogel, comes to the Regent Theatre for a 5-week engagement, April 17 – May 19.
Described as “One part lasagna, one part kreplach, and two parts Prozac,” you don’t have to be Jewish or Italian to love this show. All you need is to know what it feels like to leave a family dinner with heartburn and a headache!
The show played for 2 years in New York City and has toured internationally in more than 100 cities.
Written by award-winning author Steve Solomon, the hilarious one-man comedy is based on his life growing up in a wacky family noted for its bi-ethnic diversity and aptitude for dysfunctional behavior, and all the people in his life whose sole purpose was to drive him into therapy! The author, whose mother is from Palermo and whose father is from Russia, grew up as one of two siblings in Brooklyn.
MY MOTHER’S ITALIAN, MY FATHER’S JEWISH & I’M IN THERAPY!, stars award-winning actor and comedian Peter Fogel, who has appeared in more than 20 television programs including Married With Children, Unhappily Ever After and Men Behaving Badly.
The production won ”Favorite New Play” by Broadway.com and won the “Broadway Theater Fans Choice Award” on BroadwayWorld.com. The show was also nominated for awards by The Connecticut Critics Circle and the San Francisco Drama Desk.
