The popular comedy/drama starring Emmy Award-winning actress-comedienne Gold will officially open Oct. 12. Karen Kohlhaas directs 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, according to press notes, "Gold’s personal journey about becoming a parent, while learning to be a daughter to a nagging Jewish mother of her own."
The production was previously seen at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival.
Actress-comedienne Judy Gold won two Emmy Awards for writing and producing "The Rosie O'Donnell Show." Nominated twice for the American Comedy Award, Gold is the host of HBO's "At the Multiplex with Judy Gold." Her screen credits also include "Comedy Central Presents: Judy Gold," "Tough Crowd Stands Up," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "The Aristocrats." Gold's HBO half-hour special received a Cable Ace Award.
