In this award-winning comic play, Jennie Fahn revisits her very colorful character of a mother during what turned out to be the final act of her mother’s life. Jennie’s mother was a force to be reckoned with — a former dancer never content to merely rehash her past, there was always a story to be embellished, always a name to drop, and always a lesson to teach. Jennie learns that not only were her post-mortem instructions hidden in a specific spot... Her mother was also hiding a long-held secret.
“Make a beaten path to Under The Jello Mold... A one-person show must demonstrate diversity of character, intelligent, crisp, catchy and electric dialogue and stage presence that catches and holds the audience's attention. This show... delivers in all three categories with a uniquely comedic turn by Fahn and transparent direction by Tom Cavanaugh."

"Jennie manages to find the humor in every situation. She throws in a charming song and dance number to boot. The segment when she discovers that Mom has passed is done with taste and strikes a nerve in the viewer... She handles both roles as herself and mom with aplomb!"
- NoHo Arts District
"This is the show that will imprint your eyes, your imagination, and mostly your heart, in the most loving, humorous way... Fahn’s story is deeply moving as it is funny. Her priceless characterizations of her mother, father and everyone else passing through this tale are endowed with so much detail and love."

"Wow. Just wow. The mother-daughter relationship can be complex and difficult to process, but Jennie Fahn turned her process into art. [A] fast-moving, remarkable piece... Will make you look at your own mother from an entirely new perspective!"
- Laura Huntt Foti, Hollywood Fringe Certified Reviewer
"Fahn is a joy to watch as she sidesteps with an economy of effort seamlessly between characters, distinguishing instantly the persona of each!"
