Daddy Issues & Laughs in The Jackie Mason MusicalJackie Mason’s real-life love child, the comic Sheba Mason, stars in The Jackie Mason Musical at Studio Theatre Long Island. This comedic chronicle looks at the decade-long tryst between the comedy icon and Sheba’s mother, playwright Ginger Reiter. The action starts when 46-year-old Jackie spots twentysomething Ginger (played by Sheba) in a Miami deli in 1977. Jackie woos her while also courting Trixie, a gorgeous young Latina, and Rosa, a senior citizen with attitude, which causes Ginger some romantic distress. When Ginger becomes pregnant 10 years later, Jackie denies his paternity — while still yearning to be with her — and a complicated relationship begins. Enjoy original songs like “Ode to the Early Bird Special” and “I Never Met This Yenta,” which pepper Sheba’s major (and majorly hilarious) daddy issues. Written by Ginger Reiter, the girl in the eye of the comedic storm.
