The baffled King's accomplishments are derailed when the Queen of Sheba (Comic Sheba Mason) shows up in Jerusalem, wreaking havoc among the harem wives. Music by Ginger Reiter (Jackie Mason Musical).
Based on the legend of King Solomon who had 700 wives and (just in case they all suffered from a headache one night) - 300 concubines on the side - this hilarious new musical-comedy by the composer/lyricist of The Jackie Mason Musical (Ginger Reiter), features a harem of favorites including Comedienne Sheba Mason (Jackie Mason's daughter) and Elaine Shapiro. David R. Gordon plays the wise king whose accomplishments are derailed when the beautiful Queen of Sheba shows up in Jerusalem, disrupting harem life among the wives and shattering the misbegotten dreams of one very perplexed Transvestwife wannabe. Cantor Manny Silver channels Rodney Dangerfield as the disembodied voice of G-d who "gets no respect." Heavily peppered with iconic words of wisdom, the play also features lacerating political satire. Like when Solomon decides to try his labor budget by announcing: "We will use foreign slaves from one of the shit-hole countries to build the Temple." Reiter's original musical numbers include such gems as "Just Marry the Girls" to assuage a pharaoh's anger at "shtupping" his daughter. Theatre Critic Mind Leaf: "King Solomon & His 700 Wives is as shiny and new a musical as you'll see all year... that will leave you laughing so hard that you will be falling off your seat."
