A Jewish man-child, straight out of any B-rate Apatow film shuns his dead career-driven Jewish mother and stereotypical nagging, thin, brunette, Jewish ex-fianccee and falls in "first date" love with a non-Jewish, no direction pixie "rebel". Did the writers team up with Andy Cohen to produce "Princesses of Long Island" or is the demeaning portrayal of Jewish women just a happy coincidence in this lackluster musical? Maybe one day we will move past Fran the Nanny and Howard Wolowitz's mother and see a truly modern Jewish woman -- but it wasn't in the book for these three "Aarons". The failure of the musical is in no part due to the adorableness of the two leads. And I'll leave the "Just Jack" gay BFF stereotype for someone else's rant.
