About this show

Based on Penny Orloff's best-selling novel, Jewish Thighs on Broadway is a show about the inexplicable obsession that propels a seemingly sane and talented human being towards a career on the stage. It also examines the heroine's oddball immigrant family, her 30-year diet, a Rogues' Gallery of semi-boyfriends, a mother from another planet, the eternal sadism of rejection, high-stakes treason, self-imposed loneliness and her ultimate survival of a German Opera director. Also complicating her life is her primitive alter-ego called The Beast. This creature can kill, dismember and devour an entire cheesecake; wreak havoc upon an unsuspecting Gilbert and Sullivan troupe; and beat the crap out of smaller muggers on the sidewalks of New York.
