They say: Judy Gold, star of the critically acclaimed 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, is back in this hysterical coming-of-age memoir with music about Judy's life-long love affair with sitcoms and her professional quest to finally land a TV show of her own. But is America ready for a gay, kosher, 6'3" feminist SEINFELD with two kids, one bathroom, and weekly trips to the nursing home? And why can't Judy get legally married in the state of New York anyway? Funny, biting, revealing, and very timely.

We say: Two years ago, Theater J hosted Judy Gold's one-woman show 25 Questions, and they've brought her back again, this time with music. I'm not familiar with her, but you can check out a bunch of youtube clips to get some samples of her sense of humor. ("Judy Gold in an Atlanta hotel" is lame, but the others are funny). 20something and I are excited to go to the opening night production and will be sure to report back.
