RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

This easy-to-produce, wildly funny comedy is about three generations of a Jewish family. All the fast-paced action takes place around an all-purpose dining table; sometimes a restaurant table, and other times the dining table of a Jewish mother to end all Jewish mothers. Other characters include an exceedingly irreverent younger son, his martini-swilling older brother who is married to a shiksa, and the older brother's two kids. Table Settings, a highly acclaimed and long-running Off Broadway success, is an hysterical look at an American family.
