Part memoir and part stand-up routine, this hilarious and affecting play breaks down just what makes Jewish mothers so lamentable, laughable, and lovable.
"Gold charms a restive audience with almost mesmeric ability."
— Village Voice
"Gold's show is a genuine mitzvah."
— Time Out New York
"The show is riotously funny and ultimately quite moving."
— Hollywood Reporter
"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
