The Jackie Mason Musical

The Jackie Mason Musical begins at a deli in Miami in 1977, where Jackie, a renown 46 year old comedian, spots twenty-something Ginger (played by Jackie’s own daughter – comedian Sheba Mason). Along for the ride is her overbearing mom, Mrs. Olivier and a hilarious cast of six. Soon Jackie is wooing her each winter whenever he’s in South Florida while churning up laughs with the South Beach set. The trouble is, Jackie is also wooing Trixie (a ravishing young Latina), and Rosa (a senior citizen with attitude). This is a fact that understandably sends Ginger into romantic distress.  After 10 years, she becomes pregnant.  Jackie denies his paternity though still yearning to be with Ginger.  A complicated relationship begins, including Sheba’s own love for the man she knows is her father, and whom she wishes she knew.

Written & Directed by Ginger Reiter, the original score includes the songs “Ode to the Early Bird Special” and “I Never Met This Yenta”.  The shows stars SHEBA MASON, MEREDITH CARISKI, JOSEPH LONG, GABY TORTOLEDO, CRISTY BLANCO, CHARLES BARAN, VICKI KLEIN, ELAINE BUDNICK, and DAVID R GORDON*
