Traverse City Events: My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish And I’m in Therapy! comes to City Opera House on Friday, Jan 18 and Saturday, Jan. 19 at 8:00 p.m. Written and performed by comedian Steve Solomon, this two-time award-winning, autobiographical one-man show has been met with rave reviews and great audience acclaim throughout the country, becoming one of the longest running one-man shows in Broadway history. Once again, we meet the people that we’re all too familiar with; the family members that make you remember why you left home in the first place. It’s a laugh-filled fest of everybody you know, have known, and some you’d want to forget but can’t, all brought to life on stage by the comedic magic of Steve Solomon.
With this show, Steve Solomon paints a masterpiece of family dysfunction that will leave you laughing and crying, most likely at the same time. To say that an evening spent with Solomon is like being with a dear, funny friend is an understatement. In truth, an evening with him is more like being with dozens of hilarious friends and eccentric members of your own family.
Solomon is a native of Brooklyn, NY. His multi-ethnic neighborhood was the perfect training ground for a dialectician, and he learned at an early age how to use his gift for imitating accents to his advantage. Solomon has taken the art of impersonation and honed it into a science, masterfully weaving different dialects and crazy characters into his stories. These tales take on a life of their own as Solomon recounts memorable moments from his past and makes hysterical observations on timely topics.
