About this show

Following a sold-out run at Ars Nova Theater last spring, Emmy-winning actress/comedienne Judy Gold's critically acclaimed 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother transfers Off-Broadway. This heartfelt and hilarious one-woman show is written by Kate Moira Ryan with Judy Gold, and directed by Karen Kohlhaas. The show is Gold's personal journey about becoming a parent, while learning to be a daughter to a nagging Jewish mother of her own. "Judy Gold captures the audience from the moment she opens her mouth. She seamlessly weaves anecdotes from her own life with snippets from interviews conducted with 50 Jewish mothers across the United States. The result is fiercely funny, honest and moving." -- New York Times "The show is riotously funny and ultimately quite moving." -- Hollywood Reporter "Gold's show is a genuine mitzvah." -- Time Out New York "Gold charms a restive audience with almost mesmeric ability." -- Village Voice
