BWW Review: Molly Ryan's 'Cheeky' Tribute to Mae West Is a Frisky Revelation at the Metropolitan RoomBWW Review: Molly Ryan's 'Cheeky' Tribute to Mae West Is a Frisky Revelation at the Metropolitan Room
by Alix Cohen - Jan 16, 2016

by Carol Kassie - Dec 9, 2015

In 1988 in Florida's Dade County, Ginger Reiter sued comedian Jackie Mason for paternity, claiming he was the father of her daughter Sheba.  She won.  Reiter went on to become a high school English teacher in South Florida, and raised her daughter on her own (Mason did pay child support until Sheba turned 18).  But she also had a story to tell, and a unique one at that.   Both Sides of a Famous Love Affair - The Jackie Mason Musical is Reiter's light-hearted, laughter-filled musical recounting of her relationship with Mason, starring the result of that much contested union - her daughter Sheba Mason.  (more...)
