Off-Broadway hit show comes to Knoxville


Not That Jewish, a critically acclaimed, Off-Broadway hit comedy will come to Knoxville over Memorial Day Weekend. This one-woman play is written and performed by Emmy Award Winning writer, comedian, and actress Monica Piper. It’s a provocative, entertaining, and poignant exploration of faith, family, and the values that inform our lives.

Critics have praised the show as “a gem” (New York Times) and “a wonderful evening of entertainment” (Broadway World). Often compared to Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays, and Amazon Prime’s hottest comedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Not That Jewish is a story about everyday events written through the lens of a Jewish Heart. Attendees don’t need to be Jewish (or religious at all) to appreciate and enjoy the show – they need only to be human. Monsignor Jim Lisante, host of “Personally Speaking”, on Sirius XM Radio said, “Monica Piper – a great writer, comedienne and actress – has put together a work of art about life, family, and values. One of the most moving things I’ve ever seen. It made me laugh. It made me cry.”

Written with the same humor and wit that won Piper an Emmy for Rugrats, an American Comedy Award Nomination for Top Female Comedian, and her own Showtime Special; Monica takes us on a hilarious journey from her childhood in the Bronx all the way to Broadway. Her questioning of what it means to “be Jewish” leads her on a journey of exploration that concludes with an understanding of what it means to have “a Jewish Heart” – one of humor, compassion, acceptance, and good deeds. In fact, a Jewish Heart is a human heart; something that can be shared universally and appreciated by those across all faiths and backgrounds. The audience falls in love with her whole family, but especially her father – who began his career as a comedian and provides some of the funniest, most poignant moments of the play.

The Knoxville Bijou Theatre will host three performances over Memorial Day Weekend:
- Friday, 5/24/19 at 7:00 PM
- Sunday, 5/26/19 at 2:00 PM
- Sunday, 5/26/19 at 7:00 PM

May 30-31 and June 1
Marble City Opera presents “Suor Angelica” by Giacomo Puccini
St. John’s Cathedral (Courtyard); 413 Cumberland Ave.
Performed with full cast and orchestra in the courtyard of St. John’s Cathedral, the Puccini classic “Suor Angelica” follows the events of a single day in the lives of Sister Angelica and the other nuns in a convent. Their peaceful lives are interrupted one day when Angelica’s aunt, the Principessa, arrives with news of their family. Having been cloistered within the walls of the convent for several years, the information is completely new to Angelica and shakes her to the core. The tragic events that are set off eventually lead to her ultimate redemption, and the story masterfully told through Puccini’s score make this a can’t miss staple of the operatic canon. Tickets: $30 Adults/$15 Students
