(WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ) -- My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m Home For The Holidays! comes to Monmouth University's Pollak Theatre on Sunday, December 11, 2022 at 4:00pm. After last season’s sell-out, it’s another laugh-filled evening of family chaos from the award-winning writer and comedian Steve Solomon. Steve is back with more wild and hilarious stories – including holiday dinner at Grandma’s, where if you’re under 55, you STILL sit at the children’s table.
It's a time of peace – a time of joy – a time of remembering why you left home in the first place!
We’ll meet: Uncle Willie, Stuttering Cousin Bob, Demented Cousin Kenny, Steve’s new therapist Cousin Sal (and Sal’s parole officer) and a myriad of astounding characters we know, love and tolerate from our own families; each one brought to life on stage by Steve using his gift for creating voices dialects & wacky sound effects that only add to the hilarity of each story.
The Pollak Theatre is located at 400 Cedar Avenue on the campus of Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey. It is a recently renovated 700 seat theatre that presents live music, theatre and dance by national touring artists such as Rosanne Cash, Jason Isbell, L.A. Theatreworks, and Ailey II Dance Company. In addition, the Pollak Theatre also screens HD broadcasts of the MET Opera, National Theatre of London, and The Bolshoi Ballet, along with children’s theater and other programming presented by the Center for the Arts.
