From the creators of Come From Away, the current Broadway sensation, comes another musical based on a true story. My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding tells the story of a mother and son. The mother feels lost in life, wrestling with her identity. A new job (in Ottawa, as a matter of fact) brings new opportunities and with it a chance to truly find herself… discovering her sexuality, rediscovering her faith, and eventually coming out to her teenage son, ex-husband and homophobic Jewish mother. My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding is for every mother who has ever come out to her son as a lesbian… and a Jew. It is for every girlfriend who has met her future lesbian in-laws… at Hooters. And it is for everyone who’s ever been in love. It features sensational songs that run the gamut from heartfelt (“Araid” and “You and Me”) to hilarious (“You Don’t Need a Penis” and “Don’t Take Your Lesbian Moms to Hooters”), to educational (“A Short History of Gay Marriage”).
