"My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy" tells the humor-filled and heartwarming tale of actor-comedian Brad Zimmerman, whose 29-year quest to build a performing career is supported by a "temporary" job in the restaurant industry. Zimmerman, who's opened for Joan Rivers, George Carlin and Brad Garrett, shares stories of his oft-hilarious family, career and none-too-successful love life in this one-man show that's played to appreciative audiences across the country. You might also recognize him from "The Sopranos", where he played Johnny Sack's lawyer -- so at least he could say he met his parents' expectations, even if it was as a fictional character.

Among the guests is Alfredo, who has admired her from afar and chooses this night to confess to her his love. Violetta resists, valuing her freedom above all else. However, Alfredo wins her over with his pleas and the two fall deeply in love, and they begin living together outside of Paris. However, the lovers are interrupted by Alfredo's father, who renounces his son's decision to live with Violetta. Violetta becomes convinced against her heart's desires to leave Alfredo alone. Through misunderstandings and hurt, they end up at a party together, Alfredo gambling and raging, and Violetta heartbroken. In the final act, the two finally come together, but it is too late for Violetta's failing health. This tragic piece is one of the most widely-performed and celebrated operas in the world.
