The Jewish Ensemble Theatre is excited to host nationally known comedienne Judy Gold as their first of two limited engagement guest artists for the 2010-2011 season. “25 Questions for a Jewish Mother” by Kate Moira Ryan and Judy Gold will play at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13 and 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 14 in the Marion and David Handleman Hall at the Jewish Community Center in West Bloomfield.
Emmy-winning actress/comedienne Judy Gold and award-winning playwright Kate Moira Ryan embarked on a five-year journey across the United States, interviewing over 50 Jewish women of different ages, ethnicities and occupations. The end result – which includes Gold’s personal journey during which she becomes a parent, while simultaneously learning to be a daughter to a Jewish mother of her own – is a moving, humorous and astonishing portrait of what makes a Jewish mother.
Gold received a 2006 Drama Desk nomination for outstanding solo performance for “25 Questions for a Jewish Mother.” The show also won the 2007 GLAAD award for “Outstanding New York Theater.” The New York Times called this one-woman show “fiercely funny, honest and moving.”
Tickets range from $38 to $41 with discounts for seniors and students. Tickets have been selling at a rapid pace and the show is well on its way to selling out.
The Jewish Community Center is located at 6600 West Maple Rd. (corner of Maple & Drake) in West Bloomfield. There is ample free parking and handicap accessibility.
