Annie Korzen's solo extravaganza is a sophisticated celebration of womanhood, from the Bronx to Beverly Hills. Through hilarious and often poignant tales and songs, Korzen (Doris Klompus on Seinfeld) creates 40 characters to serve up the comical trials and tribulations of being female and Jewish in America. But the universality of her stories of courtship, career, marriage and motherhood, of family and friendship also tell what it's like growing up female and ________ (fill in the blank with any ethnicity.) Brimming over with passion, humor, and irony, Korzen is a Jackie Mason with soul who takes us on an odyssey that slices through tired stereotypes, creating an equal-opportunity entertainment!
