Steve Solomon to appear here in ‘Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt’

Steve Solomon, author and star of the award-winning show My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish and I’m in Therapy, returns to Clearwater with his newest project, Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt…The Therapy Continues at the Capitol Theatre on Saturday, March 14 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now for both performances.

Almost a million people throughout the United States and overseas have laughed at Solomon’s hit shows: My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish And I’m STILL In Therapy and his holiday show, My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish And I’m HOME For The Holidays.

His new show, Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt…The Therapy Continues, is a compilation of the best of Solomon’s hit shows with new comedy material built in.

A native of Brooklyn, Solomon grew up in the multiethnic neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay. As the class clown, Solomon learned at an early age how to use his gift for imitating accents to his advantage like as a very authentic sounding Chinese restaurant delivery boy. Later on, he became a physics teacher and an assistant superintendent of schools on Long Island.

He left academia to follow his first love, comedy writing and performing. Solomon is the winner of the CT Drama Desk Award, Broadway’s Best New Play award and was nominated by the San Francisco Critics Circle for Best Actor in a One-Man play.

Solomon’s new show is a laugh fest of folks everybody might know or have known and some they may want to forget, but can’t. Each of the 20 or so characters brought to life by Solomon uses the voices and dialects that he possesses in real life. Audience members can close their eyes and swear there are two or three people chatting on stage.

Reserved tickets are priced at $60, $45 and $35 are available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater, or by calling (727) 791-7400. The Capitol Theatre is located at 405 Cleveland St. in downtown Clearwater.
