Call Redialed: It's great catching up with Sir Ari Gold, Billboard Top 10 award winning recording artist. I love interviewing Ari because he goes in deep, telling it like it is. Ari & I discuss his new one-man show "POP OUT," about becoming the first openly gay chart-topping pop singer-songwriter. Ari's emotional, musical memoir tells a story of family & religion, sex & pop, & the search for a community of one’s own. "POP OUT" plays one night only 9/17 at 7pm at The Laurie Beechman Theatre NYC!

Call Redialed: Lucie Pohl is one of the funniest up & coming comedian/actresses/writers I have seen. I've known her for almost three years now & have seen two of her shows, both of which, left me in stitches.

Call Answered: I first heard about Brad Zimmerman's show "My Son The Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy" when it had its NYC run in 2014, but never got to see it. I'm so grateful for second chances because when I called, Brad answered. "My Son The Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy" is the hilarious & inspiring story about the grit & passion it takes to "make it" as an artist & the sweet rewards that come from never giving up! "My Son The Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy" will play Bucks County Playhouse from 3/23-4/9!
Call Answered: When I found out "Inside the Wild Heart," a new immersive play, based upon the writings of Clarice Lispector, was one of the most influential Jewish writers, I thought of my grandparents, who were proud Zionists.

Call Answered: I really enjoy a good love story! When playwright James Aronson was presented to me as an interview, I boiled my pasta & ate my knish while talking to James about his semi-autobiographical show, "Eleganté...A Mostly True Story" about an Italian Catholic guy from Brooklyn who met a Long Island Jewish Princess & what happened when they fell in love. To hear about the events that inspired this show were terrific! "Eleganté..." will play TADA! Youth Theater in NYC thru 9/25!
