Photos: Fran Drescher Visits Monica Piper's NOT THAT JEWISH Off-Broadway


At a recent performance of NOT THAT JEWISH, the new comedy at New World Stages written by and starring Emmy Award winner Monica Piper, got just a little more Jewish when Fran Drescher came to see the show. After the performance, she stopped backstage to congratulate Piper on her hit - scroll down for a photo of the pair together!

Drescher tweeted later:

NOT THAT JEWISH is the hilarious new comedy written and performed by Emmy Award-winning and Golden Globe nominated writer, actress and comedian Monica Piper, directed by Mark Waldrop (Howard Crabtree's When Pigs Fly, Bea Arthur on Broadway: Just Between Friends), and playing off-Broadway at New World Stages (340 W 50th St, New York, NY 10019).

Piper stars in this autobiographical ride of a Jew'ish' woman's life. From her show business family in the Bronx, to a WASP wedding, to her first step on a Comedy Club stage and life as a single mom, Piper shares the milestones and moments that shaped her life with the same signature wit found in her writing on "Roseanne," "Mad About You," and her Emmy Award winning work on "Rugrats." Reminiscent of Billy Crystal's 700 Sundays with a peppering of Neil Simon's Lost In Yonkers, Not That Jewish is 90 lightning-fast minutes of funny, moving and inspirational theater.
