The Judy Show - My Life As A Sitcom, the new comedy starring Judy Gold, will end it's extended limited engagement at Off-Broadway's DR2 Theatre (103 E 15th Street) on November 27th.

Judy Gold returns to the stage in this hilarious look at her life through the lens of the classic sitcoms of her youth. With multimedia, original music, laughter, and love, Judy shows us how she balances family and ambition with a little help from our favorite TV shows of the Seventies, Eighties, and Nineties. Judy Gold, the much-loved star of stage and TV, was recently seen Off-Broadway in Love, Loss, and What I Wore, as well as her critically acclaimed long-running hit show 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother. She is the star of HBO's At the Multiplex with Judy Gold and seen regularly on The View, The Joy Behar Show, Comedy Central, LOGO and VH1.
The Judy Show - My Life As A Sitcom opened to rave reviews with The New York Times calling the show "Brash, buoyant, and infectiously nostalgic. Highly entertaining!" and the Huffington Post calling it "comedic gold. A funny and fantastic ride! It's the ultimate laughter-through-the tears tale."
