The Jackie Mason Musical begins at a deli in Miami in 1977, where Jackie – a renown 46 year old Comedian spots twenty-something Ginger (played by Jackie's own daughter – comedian Sheba Mason). Along for the ride is her overbearing mom, Mrs. Olivier and a hilarious cast of six. Soon Jackie is wooing her each winter whenever he's in South Florida churning up laughs with the South Beach set. The trouble is, Jackie is also wooing Trixie - a ravishing young Latina waitress, and Rosa - a senior Rascal House server with attitude - a fact that sends Ginger into romantic distress. After 10 years, she becomes pregnant, Jackie denies his paternity, while still yearning to be with her, and a complicated relationship begins, including Sheba's own love for the man she knows is her father and whom she wishes she knew. The Original Score includes "Ode to the Early Bird Special" and "I Never Met This Yenta"
In 1988 in Florida's Dade County, Ginger Reiter sued comedian Jackie Mason for paternity, claiming he was the father of her daughter Sheba. She won. Reiter went on become a high school English teacher in South Florida, and raised her daughter on her own (Mason did pay child support until Sheba turned 18). But she also had a story to tell, and a unique one at that. Both Sides of a Famous Love Affair - The Jackie Mason Musical is Reiter's light-hearted, laughter-filled musical recounting of her relationship with Mason, starring the result of that much contested union - her daughter Sheba Mason.
