BWW Review: MY SON THE WAITER:  A JEWISH TRAGEDY at 7 Stages TheatreBWW Review: MY SON THE WAITER: A JEWISH TRAGEDY at 7 Stages Theatre
by Amy Zipperer - May 29, 2017

Funnyman Brad Zimmerman has come to 7 Stages Theatre in Atlanta with his critically acclaimed one-man show, My Son The Waiter:  A Jewish Tragedy.  Zimmerman calls the show a hybrid.  Part stand-up.  Part theatre.  And the stand-up part is funny.  Really funny. That's not surprising given that Zimmerman has spent much of his professional performance career opening for comedy giants like Joan Rivers and George Carlin.  As the title suggests, a good deal of the comedy hinges upon stereotypes of the overbearing Jewish mother, and Zimmerman has realized a sharply honed portrait of his own Jewish mother that generates an abundance of laughter.  But this isn't what earns the show its most substantive praise.  The theatre part is what's particularly worthy of note, and, setting aside a few moments that fall a bit too far from the carefully drawn thesis of the piece which maintains that the best life is the one in which fear has not been an inhibitor of running after one's dreams, Zimmerman achieves a level of truth-bearing intimacy that makes this piece feel like a beautifully executed motivational speech.  (more...)
