Starring Comic Sheba Mason (Jackie Mason's own daughter) as her mother Ginger, and based on a true story, the musical begins at the Rascal House, Miami Beach Hotspot Deli in 1977,where Jackie – a renown 46 year old Comedian, spots twenty-something Ginger. Along for the ride is her overbearing, yet glamorous mom, Mrs. Olivier. Soon Jackie is wooing her each winter whenever he’s in South Florida churning up laughs with the South Beach set. The trouble is, Jackie is also wooing Trixie – a ravishing young Latina Rascal House server, and Rosa – a senior Rascal House server with attitude – a fact that sends Ginger into romantic distress. Add Wooley the Shlepalong (Jackie’s sidekick) into the mix, and Nelson Zee, an irate, revengeful fan, Ginger becomes helplessly addicted to Jackie's compelling yet lifestyle. After ten years, she becomes pregnant, Jackie denies his paternity just as stardom re-emerges, while still yearning to be with her, and a complicated relationship begins, including Sheba’s own love for the man she knows is her father and whom she wishes she knew. The original score includes “Ode to the Early Bird Special” and “I Never Met This Yenta”, written by Ginger Reiter, the girl in the eye of the comedic storm.
