Both Sides of a famous love affair between legendary comic Jackie Mason and a belly-dancing-playwright as seen through the eyes of lovechild Sheba Mason, starring Ian Wehrle as Jackie, and a Hilarious Cast of eight. Live singing, original Score includes.:. “Ode to the Early Bird Special” and “I Never Met this Yenta"
It begins at the bustling Rascal House delicatessen in Miami Beach 1977.. Jackie Mason (played by Ian Wehrle), spots Ginger sitting with her mother, Mrs.Olivier, among the pastrami platters and pickles, and sends his lackey over to her table. Mrs. Olivier, Ginger’s glamorous, overbearing mother, is overjoyed to introduce her daughter to the much older comedian. The fawning mother answers every question Jackie directs to Ginger, whereupon he says:
"She must also be a ventriloquist. I ask her a question and every answer comes out of your mouth!"
As they leave the Rascal House she advises Ginger not to rush into bed with him immediately but to "make him suffer a little." Fascinated by Jackie’s brilliant comic routines and dynamic charisma, Ginger falls hopelessly in love. She finds herself waiting for his calls and rushing out at all hours of the night to be with him - under the strict guidance of Mrs Olivier, who monitors every detail of the affair down to the negligee!
