Details

"There's a little Jewish mother in every mother," as comedienne Judy Gold reveals. For a Jewish girl who remembers the first book ever read to her as a child was the pop-up version of The Diary of Anne Frank, learning how to be a Jewish mother who wasn't a carbon copy of HER Jewish mother, wasn't easy. Here, Emmy Award winning comedienne Judy Goldasks, "Are there any Jewish mothers out there like me, or are they all, G-d forbid, like my mother"?

In 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, Gold incorporates her own adventures in Jewish motherdom and her memories of growing up Jewish in suburban New Jersey - communicating with her mother by putting Ann Landers articles on the fridge ("Dear Ann, My mother won't let me walk alone to school and I'm 16! Please help." "Dear Ann, The crossing guard drinks. Please help.")

" In 25 Questions she seamlessly weaves anecdotes from her own life - she's the single, Jewish (and Kosher) lesbian mother of two sons, with a strident Jewish mother of her own ("I'm like a documentary premiering at a gay film festival in Berlin, 'Das Orthodyke,' " she quips) - with snippets from the interviews. The result is fiercely funny, honest and moving." New York Times

"A SOLID LAUGH-GETTER! Very funny yet heart-felt. GOLD IS DELIGHTFULLY ON THE COMEDY MARK!" - Curtain Up
