The Show

This popular show about the lives of three Jewish widows is funny and poignant; full of laughter and tears. Lifetime friends, Ida, Doris and Lucille are part of a club, The Cemetery Club. Every month they meet at Ida's house in New York for tea, then trundle off to the cemetery to remember the good times and gossip with deceased husbands. Sam, the butcher, meets the widows at the cemetery while visiting his late wife and changes their lives forever. The movie version of this wonderful comedy starred Olympia Dukakis, Diane Ladd, and Ellen Burstyn.
