Jackie Mason Will Likely Skip His Daughter's New Play

In 1987, comedian Jackie Mason anticipated the title of his 1996 Broadway show, “Love Thy Neighbor,” by fathering a child with playwright Ginger Reiter (best known, according to TheaterOnline, for the play “Pickles,” based on their 10-year affair).

The product of that union is about to tell her own side of the story, The New York Post’s Page Six reports. Sheba Mason’s “702 Punchlines and Pregnant” will premiere July 6 at Gramercy Park’s Richard Shepard Theater. She’ll be playing her own mother; actor Alex Dunbar will play her famous father, who, Sheba told the Post, is not exactly expected to bring roses on opening night.
