Hyperion will release a book based on the show on Mother's Day. The popular comedy/drama starring Emmy Award-winning actress-comedienne Gold officially opened Oct. 12, 2006. Previews began Sept. 27.
Karen Kohlhaas directed the 70-minute intermissionless play, which was co-written by Gold and Kate Moira Ryan.
25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, which was previously titled God Doesn't Pay Rent Here, is "Gold’s personal journey about becoming a parent, while learning to be a daughter to a nagging Jewish mother of her own." The show received a 2006 Drama Desk nomination and a 2007 GLAAD Media Award nomination.
The production was previously seen at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival.
