    Grandma Sylvia's Funeral

    Grandma Sylvia’s Funeral, the Jewish counterpart to the popular, Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding, is back in South Florida. This hit Off Broadway, interactive play centers on the sudden death of beloved Matriarch Sylvia and the saga of her dysfunctional family. As a mourner/ticket holder, you will pay your respects as both an observer and participant in this improvisational and scripted play of a Jewish funeral gone wrong. You’ll laugh, cry, sing and enjoy a “Nosh” bagel brunch as the show puts the “fun back in funeral.”

    Even if you're the type destined to arrive last for your own burial, you should make a concerted effort to show up at least fifteen minutes early. During those precious fifteen minutes, Grandma Sylvia herself arrives in a coffin that has been unceremoniously jammed into a taxi trunk. Her hearse broke down on the highway and the only way to get her to the funeral home, aka the theatre on time, is in a cab, driven by an Arab cabdriver. As a ticket holder, you may be drafted to help carry the coffin. Or be willing to mingle with the members of the cast who are milling around, playing the roles of Sylvia’s friends and family. Just be prepared to explain how you knew Sylvia. It’s bound to come up in the conversation.
