'MY SON THE WAITER' Offering Free Tickets to Waiters

Calling all waiters and waitresses!

Take a break from your favorite and not so favorite customers to see the one-man show, "My Son the Waiter, a Jewish Tragedy," for free at the Regent Theatre in Arlington through May 25.

To see the serious, yet heartfelt and inspiring show for FREE with one guest, visit www.500waiters.com and click the "Please start" button. Participants also can win a $100 gift certificate to an area resident if they post a selfie at the Regent to the show's Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/500waiters.

The show was conceived and written by Brad Zimmerman, who also stars in the production. Zimmie (that's what his loving father called him) never quite finds himself professionally after college - to the point that he waits tables for 29 years in New York City! At 42, he attends a stand-up comedy class and finds his calling. He later went opened for Joan Rivers for eight years. But life continued having its ups and downs for Zimmerman, plagued by the fear of failure.

The show is funny and humorous, especially about life as a waiter and dealing with customers, but also definitely has a serious underpinning about a guy who ultimately finds satisfaction in an imperfect life.

"My Son the Waiter..." runs through May 25 at the Regent Theatre, 7 Medford St., Arlington. Performances at the Regent are scheduled at 2 and 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, 7 p.m. on Thursdays, 8 p.m. on Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. on Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays.

Ticket prices are $47 on Wednesday and Thursday and $57 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. All seats are reserved and can be purchased online at www.regenttheatre.com or at the Regent Theatre, 7 Medford St., Arlington, or by calling 781-646-4849.

"My Son the Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy is produced by Philip Roger Roy and Dana Matthow. For more information, visit www.mysonthewaiter.com.
