The story was actually more stand-up than I had expected - -but it was all good. A few belly laughs, lots of giggles - and surprisingly poignant and serious at many times. Judy morphed in and out of the voices and characters of many of the mothers she had interviewed for the show - - but none better than her own mother!
Admittedly, the show probably doesn't play well outside of New York (she took a form of it to Seattle to see how the 4 Jews there would like it). It's at the St Luke's Theater off-Broadway, so the audience is limited mostly to Jewish mothers and their friends and a few other "goim" New Yorkers who are Judy fans. And that's just fine - because if you're not one of those you'd probably sit there and wonder what the heck she was talking about all night ("Damn it Judith, it happened again - - Get the plant!).
