About this show

Based on more than 50 interviews with Jewish women from across the United States, this 70-minute monologue is a moving and humorous portrayal of what makes a Jewish mother, a Jewish mother. The show seamlessly incorporates interview responses with anecdotes from performer Judy Gold's own experiences as she tries to prove that she, a single, lesbian mother of two, is nothing like the stereotypical Jewish mothers of her childhood. 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother played to sold-out audiences in New York and went on to receive the 2006 Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance.
