Sherry Glaser Takes Aim at Religion in 'The Second Coming'

Sherry Glaser won acclaim in the 1990s with 'Family Secrets.' See what the Los Angeles Times says.

Sherry Glaser's "Family Secrets" still holds the record it earned in 1995 as the longest-running, one-person, off-Broadway show. The comedy, in which Glaser played five characters inspired by her offbeat family, got glowing reviews and won awards across the country.

Skip ahead 15 years. Glaser's new show, "The Second Coming: A One-Woman Comedy of Biblical Proportions," is now playing at the in Studio City.
