Steve Solomon to Perform at The Grand 1894 Opera House, 10/11
On Saturday, October 11, 2014 at 8 pm, author/performer Steve Solomon returns to The Grand 1894 Opera House with his latest laugh-out-loud, one-man show, Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt...The Therapy Continues.
A comedian and master dialectician, Solomon shares hilarious chapters in the life and times of his wacky multi-ethnic circle of family and friends with the skills and insights of one who has "experienced the mayhem" personally! Steve portrays 20 delightfully offbeat characters, using the voices and dialects that they possess in real life.
His first award-winning show, My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish & I'm in Therapy, led to the creation of equally hysterical sequels: My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish & I'm STILL in Therapy; My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish & I'm Home for the Holidays; and his latest installment, Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt...The Therapy Continues.
A native of Brooklyn, Steve Solomon grew up in the multi-ethnic neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay. This was the perfect training ground for a dialectician. As the class clown, Steve learned at an early age how to use his gift for imitating accents to his advantage. After becoming a Physics teacher and an Assistant Superintendent of Schools on Long Island, Steve left academia to follow his first love-comedy writing and performing. Solomon is the winner of the Connecticut Drama Desk Award, recipient of a Best New Play Award from Broadway World.com, and was nominated by the San Francisco Critics Circle for Best Actor in a One-Man Play.
