From the creator of: My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy

Steve Solomon’s
Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt! the therapy continues…

Steve Solomon is the author and star of the three-time award-winning, critically-acclaimed show My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy. This summer we bring you Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt!…the therapy continues, Steve’s newest project.  Almost a million people throughout the United States and overseas have laughed until they cried at Steve’s hit shows My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy; My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m STILL in Therapy; and his hilarious holiday show, My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m HOME for the Holidays—Steve’s personal favorite!

A native of Brooklyn, Steve grew up in the multi-ethnic neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay. This was the perfect training ground for a dialectician. As the class clown, and as a very authentic sounding Chinese restaurant delivery boy, Steve learned at an early age how to use his gift for imitating accents to his advantage. Later, he became a physics teacher and an Assistant Superintendent of Schools on Long Island. He left academia to follow his first love—comedy writing and performing. Steve is the winner of the CT Drama Desk Award and was nominated by the San Francisco Critics Circle for Best Actor in a One-Man Play. His show awards include Best New Play (BroadwayWorld.com).

People who have seen Steve’s shows, whether performed by Steve himself or one of his Tony Award-winning actors, leave the theaters identifying with the characters portrayed in the shows. “It’s the nuances that make the shows work” Steve says. “…the things that Pop mumbles;” like the time Steve asked him about marriage; “Dad, why do people get married?” Dad responds, “Marriage is like a bank account…you put it in…you take it out…you lose interest!”

This show is a laugh-filled fest of everybody you know, have known and some you’d want to forget, but can’t! Each of the twenty or so characters are brought to life by Steve using the voices and dialects that they possess in real life. Close your eyes and you’d swear there were two or three people chatting on stage. All these people are created by comedian and master dialectician—Steve Solomon.  Prepare to laugh, prepare to cry, and prepare to spend a wonderful side-splitting evening with Steve and his wacky family and friends.
