BRAD ZIMMERMAN RETURNS TO SOUTH FLORIDA IN THE
ONE MAN COMEDY “MY SON THE WAITER”
Every mother dreams her children will grow up to be happy, healthy and successful. Every Jewish mother secretly, and often not so secretly, adds specifics to her wish. A doctor, a lawyer, a dentist, or these days a Silicon Valley tycoon would make her very happy. Brad Zimmerman’s mother has finally adapted to actor-waiter son’s career choice and financial situation. “If all goes well, I think Brad is going to buy a bookcase,” she boasts to her friends.
My Son The Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy is the story of Zimmerman’s struggle to fulfill his dream and make it as a comedic actor in New York. One-part standup, one-part theatrical and all parts uproarious, has garnered rave reviews wherever it has played, including sold out runs at the Northshore Theatre in Skokie, Illinois, and the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick, New Jersey, this past summer.
Zimmerman has paid his dues. He spent 29 years waiting on tables, “temporarily” while at the same time chasing a career in acting and comedy. He tells of his pursuit, along with stories about his childhood, family, and misbegotten love life with great warmth, wit, self-deprecating humor, and wicked charm. While combining his years of training as an actor with his comedic talent, he also examines the trials and tribulations of waiting on tables.
The show will open on December 15, 2016, and run through January 9, 2017 at the Mizner Park Cultural Center located at 201 Plaza Real 2nd floor , Boca Raton. Tickets are $40 to $65 available by calling 844-448-769. Group rates at 888-264-1788. Online at www.mysonthewaiter.com. Showtimes evenings at 7:30 p.m. Matinees at 2 p.m.
