As part of Traditional Congregation’s 50 Year Celebration, comedian Brad Zimmerman will perform his one-man show, “My Son the Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy.”  The performance includes a kosher tapas dinner at Traditional, 12437 Ladue Road, and is open to the public.  The performance and dinner take place on Saturday, Jan. 30. Doors open at 7 p.m. and dinner begins at 7:30 p.m.

In this part standup/part theatrical piece, Zimmerman tells a story of one man’s lengthy struggle to make it as an actor in New York. His send-ups on his childhood, his family, his misbegotten love life, and his career “are as warm and poignant as they are hysterical,” said a news release.

Tickets for the dinner and entertainment are $36 per person.  The dinner includes a six-course kosher Tapas Dinner.  Seating is limited.  RSVP to Traditional Congregation at 314-576-5230.

Traditional is celebrating its 50th year in 5776 (2015-2016). Established in 1966, Traditional was the first synagogue to be located west of Lindbergh Boulevard in west St. Louis County.
