It’s a Golden Opportunity to support The Playhouse at the Judy Gold show! Donate your gold and silver rings, bracelets and necklaces to The Ridgefield Playhouse at the Gold and Silver Give Back Event before the Judy Gold and Bruce Vilanch show on January 27! Veteran jeweler Steve Delzio of The Mexican Shack will be in the lobby from 6:30-8pm to accept your jewelry as a fundraiser for The Ridgefield Playhouse, which is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit.

From 6:30 – 8pm, patrons will have the opportunity to donate real gold or silver jewelry that they no longer want and 100% of the donation will benefit The Ridgefield Playhouse. Mr. Delzio is unable to accept donations of diamonds, precious gems, or gold or silver-plated jewelry at this time. Patrons can bring their real gold or silver jewelry to his table for an appraisal. He’ll remove any precious gems and return them, and then weigh the precious metal and tell them the value of the piece. All donors will receive a tax donation letter for their records.

Mr. Delzio will also showcase some of his own jewelry, which will be available for purchase. Mr. Delzio has been in the jewelry and precious metals business for more than 43 years and sells both fine jewelry and Native-American inspired jewelry at The Mexican Shack in Somers, New York.

A full cash bar will be open in the lobby of The Playhouse during the Gold and Silver Give Back Event and donors are welcome to enjoy a cocktail hour in the lobby and stay for the comedy show, which begins at 8pm. For tickets ($39.50), call or visit the box office, 203-438-5795 or go online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a non-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.

Judy Gold Discusses Partnering Up With Bruce Vilanch (For Comedy, Folks, Geesh!) And Other Topics

Judy Gold discusses comedy partnership
By Arts & Leisure on January 25, 2018

 

When you’re talking comedy greats today, Judy Gold is truly worthy of her last name. Whether it was as writer and producer of the Rosie O’Donnell show, starring in two acclaimed Off Broadway one-woman shows (“The Judy Show — My Life as a Sitcom” and “25 Questions for a Jewish Mother”) or just the nearly 25 years she has been doing standup, the comedian delivers a gold-medal performance at every turn.

On Jan. 27, Gold will be teaming with fellow NSFW (not safe for work) comedian Bruce Vilanch for a show at the Ridgefield Playhouse titled “Big and Small.” Gold spoke with us about her upcoming show and getting her start in standup.

Keith Loria: Preview a little of what we can expect from you on the night.

Judy Gold: I’ll be ranting and going off on how much I hate everyone, which seems to be the theme of my act now. It’s going to be a really fun night.

KL: How do you and Bruce complement each other on stage?

JG: I love doing this show. Bruce is like a joke machine. He has worked with everyone and he knows stuff about all of them. It’s really fun to hear about Hollywood from someone who has made other people look funny for so long. We are so different. He tells these incredible stories about Hollywood, and I’m just me. I think we really complement each other and are funny in different ways. We’ve known each other for years.

KL: With such different styles, why did you think the pairing would work?

JG: We’re both gay, both Jews and both large! We’re both from New Jersey and were both very close with our mothers. There’s just a kinship. We just had an immediate connection.

KL: How did you know that comedy was something you wanted to do with your life?

JG: I knew I would never be happy if I didn’t follow my dream. Yet, I come from the most conservative family when it comes to risk taking. My father was a tax attorney, my mother a secretary, my sister is in insurance and my brother is a CPA. To them, my dream was crazy.

KL: You came up through the comedy ranks alongside notable comics like Ray Romano and Wanda Sykes. What was it like back then? Read More
