My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy (comedy show) – matinee / Tour – presented by Philip Roger Roy at the Lakewood Cultural Center
Aug 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy (comedy show) is the story of Brad 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, My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy has garnered rave reviews wherever it has played. 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 her ‘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.

ABOUT THE ACTOR
Brad Zimmerman
has paid his dues. He spent 29 years “temporarily” waiting tables in New York, all the while chasing a career in acting and comedy. In this show, he tells of his pursuit, along with stories about his childhood, family, and misbegotten love life with warmth, wit, self-deprecating humor, and wicked charm, and combines his years of training as an actor with his innate comedic talent. His perseverance eventually paid off — he appeared on The Sopranos (HBO), and became the opening act for a number of well-known entertainers including George Carlin, Brad Garrett, Dennis Miller, Julio Iglesias, and Joan Rivers. Zimmerman worked on the script for My Son the Waiter for nine years and performed it in small venues all over the country. The show ran for two years at off-Broadway’s Stage 72 (now the Triad Theatre).

Disaster! / Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre in Grand Lake
Aug 22 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Disaster! / Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre in Grand Lake

It’s 1979, and New York’s hottest A-listers are lining up for the opening of a floating casino and discotheque. Also attending is a faded disco star, a sexy nightclub singer with her eleven-year-old twins, a disaster expert, a feminist reporter, an older couple with a secret, a pair of young guys who are looking for ladies, an untrustworthy businessman and a nun with a gambling addiction. What begins as a night of boogie fever quickly changes to panic as the ship succumbs to multiple disasters, such as earthquakes, tidal waves and infernos. As the night turns into day, everyone struggles to survive and, quite possibly, repair the love that they’ve lost… or at least escape the killer rats.

Pride and Prejudice / Creede Repertory Theatre

You’ve never seen Jane Austen quite like this! With the heart of this masterful love story still very much intact, Kate Hamill’s farcical take on this time-honored staple of English literature has never been more captivating. Austen’s Mr. Darcy, Lizzy Bennet, and all the red-coated officers are still the classic characters you remember, but with a fresh energy and zest that’s both stunning and unexpected.

My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy (comedy show) / Tour – presented by Philip Roger Roy at the Lakewood Cultural Center
Aug 23 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy (comedy show) is the story of Brad 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, My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy has garnered rave reviews wherever it has played. 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 her ‘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.

ABOUT THE ACTOR
Brad Zimmerman
has paid his dues. He spent 29 years “temporarily” waiting tables in New York, all the while chasing a career in acting and comedy. In this show, he tells of his pursuit, along with stories about his childhood, family, and misbegotten love life with warmth, wit, self-deprecating humor, and wicked charm, and combines his years of training as an actor with his innate comedic talent. His perseverance eventually paid off — he appeared on The Sopranos (HBO), and became the opening act for a number of well-known entertainers including George Carlin, Brad Garrett, Dennis Miller, Julio Iglesias, and Joan Rivers. Zimmerman worked on the script for My Son the Waiter for nine years and performed it in small venues all over the country. The show ran for two years at off-Broadway’s Stage 72 (now the Triad Theatre).

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street / Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre in Grand Lake
Aug 23 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

SWEENEY TODD - Event Listing Promo photo - RMRT - July 2019
An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and took his young wife from him. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun!
