Sophie Sucks Face is a new musical about love, incest, the widowhood effect, and American-Israeli relations hailing from writer/performer Sophie Zucker. When Sophie accidentally hooks up with her cousin, she must decide to shun him or seduce him at the next family gathering. The one-woman show is a modern evolution of the greatest Jewish comediennes, invoking Barbra Streisand, Elaine May, and Gilda Radner. The original music is all bops – like how radio stations used to play “Grease.” In light of much heated online discourse - who is allowed to tell Jewish stories; who's allowed to represent Jewish characters - the show is both a relevant subject of these debates and a commentary on them. It has been called "funny, tender and, best of all, thrilling" by Theatrely and a "delightful showcase of [Sophie's] cornucopia of talents, but equally as important, very very funny" by Paste Magazine. At its mostly sold out Fringe Festival run, it was given five 4 star reviews, shortlisted for best show for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedian's Choice Awards, and was on the British Comedy Guide's Highly recommended list. It has also sold out Dynasty Typewriter in Los Angeles on with "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and "Reboot" star Rachel Bloom opening for Sophie, as well as runs at runs at Soho Playhouse, 54 Below, and Lifeworld in New York City.
