About Monica Piper
Monica Piper is a woman who needs no introduction. For the majority of her career, she worked as a writer for sitcoms, bringing audience’s favorites such as Mad About You and Roseanne. She also worked on the incredibly popular children’s TV show, Rugrats. In addition to her writing work, she is first and foremost, a comedian. She has also acted on many prominent stages throughout the country acting in a variety of different productions.
In Not That Jewish, Piper does something a little different. This time, she is starring in a solo autobiographical show about her experience as a Jew-‘ish’ woman in the show business world. The production is directed by Mark Waldrop, who also did When Pigs Fly.
Not That Jewish is a show which has been commissioned by the Jewish Women's Theatre Story Salon. The show has been an instant hit and due to its popularity, the overwhelming demand for tickets, and the number of times the show sold out, they have increased the number of dates for this massively popular production.
For anyone who has ever wondered what the world of show business was like from the viewpoint of a successful Jew-ish woman, Monica Piper has got you covered. Not That Jewish is a one woman show being held at the New World Stages where Piper leads audiences through the many different stages and seasons of her life.
Never having been extremely religious, Piper’s connection with her religion was always casual. Throughout the 90 minute production, she recalls anecdotes about her life, early years, father, career, various jobs, and more and relates them to her casual Jew-ish-ness.
Many of the stories are instrumental to her life – such as how her father helped to shape her sense of humor or her years spent in stand-up comedy.
At the start of the play, Piper says:
“When I was growing up, we didn’t belong to a temple, but on High Holy Days, my mother would make us dress up and stand outside the apartment building so it looked like we just got home from temple.”
The Tales That Shaped Piper
Not That Jewish is filled with a collection of stories and small moments. Some of these are humorous while at other times, Piper becomes serious, trying to recall different kinds of experiences.
Audiences can expect to learn personal details of Piper’s life, such as her father’s battle with Alzheimer’s and how this affected her, to becoming a single parent in the early 1990’s, at a time when such a thing wasn’t as widely accepted.
For anyone looking for an evening filled with entertainment and laughs, Not That Jewish is just the production for you. In this autobiographical journey, Piper discusses just what it takes to be Jewish in a time when you don’t necessarily have the time to practice your religion fully. If you don’t attend temple, does that make you any less Jewish she wonders? Piper is lead to conclude that being Jewish is about so much more than just the rituals. It’s about having compassion, love for your family, acceptance and kindness towards others, humor, and doing good things. These traits, otherwise known as having a Jewish heart, are something that anyone can cultivate.
