  • Fort Lauderdale, FL (1888PressRelease) October 16, 2010 - Who: Performer/Writer Frannie Sheridan. Directed by Shari Upbin

    What: Her unique multi-character show-Confessions of a Jewish Shiksa...Dancing on Hitler's Grave!

    Where: Zinman Hall in Boca Raton, Florida.

    When: 2:00 P.M.

    Details: In Confessions of a Jewish Shiksa, Frannie Sheridan shares the true and humorous story of being raised to hide her Orthodox Jewish identity behind a cloak of Catholicism.

    The story is told from the perspective of young Frannie, a nice Catholic girl who grew up with dumpling soup and candlesticks on Fridays, Manischevitz-spiked eggnog at Christmas, and a score of other traditions unfamiliar to her Catholic friends. Frannie's questioning leads her to discover her family's truth: her parents barely escaped the Holocaust and once in North America, were brutally attacked and left for dead by antisemites. These incidents caused them to shroud their history in secrecy, hiding their Jewish heritage even from their children. Confessions reveals the performer's family history through top-notch storytelling sprinkled with clever satire.

    The play, co-produced by The West Boca Theater Company and directed by Shari Upbin, recently inspired audiences in Montreal, Canada. Now Sheridan brings her funny, dark, multi-character one-woman show to South Florida for a command performance at Zinman Hall in Boca Raton on Sunday October 17th, 24th, and 31st.

    What reviewers are saying:

    "A gripping, powerful, story. From stand-up comedy to stand-out performing," said Mario Betto of the Fort Lauderdale Theater Examiner.

    "A Dramatic Gem," said Marla Schwartz of Around Wellington Magazine.
