Gold's latest books downtown run
“The Judy Show: My Life as a Sitcom,” Judy Gold’s follow-up to her Off Broadway outing “25 Questions for a Jewish Mother,” has booked a commercial run at the DR2 Theater downtown.
Autobiographical solo show, written by Gold and Kate Moira Ryan, played last year (with a different title) at the Williamstown Theater Festival. In addition to penning the script, Gold and Ryan also collaborated on songs for the production, which has additional material by Eric Kornfeld and Bob Smith.
Amanda Charlton, also the helmer of the show at Williamstown, returns to direct the new production, which chronicles Gold’s current life as the lesbian mother of two as well as the avid television enthusiasms of her childhood.
Gold most recently appeared Off Broadway in “Love, Loss and What I Wore.” Her TV work includes guest host stints on “The View” and “The Joy Behar Show.”
Daryl Roth (“The Normal Heart”) and Eva Price (“Colin Quinn: Long Story Short”) produce “The Judy Show,” which begins previews at the DR2 on June 30 prior to a July 7 opening.
