Italian + Jewish = Therapy, according to press notes, "relate to the wacky side of the human condition, combining comic voices, sound effects and astounding characters — bringing alive a myriad of people from all walks of life."
About his show, Solomon said in a recent statement, "It’s so exciting to be bringing my show home to New York with such a talented group of professionals — especially my new director, John Bowab. Now, each and every one of the 30+ characters from my past that I bring to life on stage, can sue me personally for defamation of character. Come to think of it, even my ex’s attorney will know where I’ll be most nights. . . . Maybe I should re-think this a bit."
