Nothing is funnier than family dysfunction. The Schwartz family has been on their last legs since Papa died a year ago. Norma’s husband isn’t speaking to her, Herb and Bonnie are having baby troubles, and Simon wants to be an astronaut. Throw a sexy wanna-be Hollywood starlet into the mix, and you’ve got the recipe for a yahrzeit gone perfectly wrong. Can Judaism hold this family together? Theater J Artistic Director Adam Immerwahr makes his DC directorial debut in this rollicking, absurd, and thoughtful comedy with a whole lot of heart.
