Event Description

The musical begins at the Rascal House, a Miami Beach Deli 1977, where Jackie – a renown 46 year old Comedian,  spots twenty-something Ginger (played by Jackie’s own daughter – comedian Sheba Mason). Along for the ride is her overbearing, yet glamorous mom, Mrs. Olivier. Soon Jackie is wooing her each winter whenever he’s in South Florida churning up laughs with the South Beach set. The trouble is, Jackie is also wooing Trixie - a ravishing young Latina Rascal House server, and Rosa - a senior Rascal House server with attitude - a fact that sends Ginger into romantic distress.  Add Wooley the Shlepalong (Jackie’s sidekick) into the mix, and Nelson Zee, an irate, revengeful fan, Ginger becomes helplessly addicted to the compelling yet tormenting lifestyle. After ten years, she becomes pregnant, Jackie denies his paternity just as stardom re-emerges, while still yearning to be with her, and a complicated relationship begins. Original score includes "Ode to The Early Bird Special".
