A hit at the 2009 Toronto Fringe Festival, performances will begin Oct. 5 at the TBG Theater.
My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding was penned by David Hein and Irene Sankoff with songs by David Hein. "Hein wrote the title song as a gift to his mother about her real life wedding," according to press notes. "Convinced the story of his mother's journey would make a good theatrical work, David and his wife, Irene Sankoff, stitched together the stories that everyone asks them to tell: what life is like with two moms, including the seven parents at their wedding; the 'facts of life' talk that Irene received from her in-laws; and how David's mom first came out to him."
The production will also feature musical supervision by Ethan Popp, choreography by Matt Williams, scenery design by Adam Koch, lighting design by Driscoll Otto, costume design by Vanessa Leuck, sound design by Jeremy Lee and musical direction by Sonny Polidano.
Show times are scheduled for Oct. 5 at 8 PM, Oct. 6 at 1 PM, Oct. 10 at 1 PM, Oct. 13 at 1 PM, Oct. 14 at 8 PM and Oct. 16 at 9 PM.
