Shakespeare gets an intergalactic rock 'n' roll makeover in Return to the Forbidden Planet. This live stage show mash-up is based on Shakespeare's The Tempest and the 1950s science fiction film Forbidden Planet (which itself drew its plot loosely from The Tempest). The play features a campy sci-fi setting and a soundtrack full of memorable rock 'n' roll hits of the '50s and '60s from the Animals, the Byrds, the Beach Boys and more. Join Repertory East Playhouse on a spaceship ride to a mysterious hidden planet inhabited by Prospero, Caliban the lovely Miranda and more like you've never experienced them before. Learn More

A play about Jewish culture as seen from the eyes of two men on the dating scene. The theater is small and intimate. The acting was good overall, but found the character actors were outstanding. The content of the play was a little cliched. ...continued
Jewtopia, written by Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson, is a comedy where stereotypes collide, cultures clash and chaos ensues! The production, sponsored by Geotechnologies Inc., and directed by REP newcomer Marlowe Weisman, is the longest running comedy ever to come out of Los Angeles.
Jewtopia_ tells the story of two 30 year old single men, Chris O’Connell and Adam Lipschitz. Chris, a gentile, wants to marry a Jewish girl so he’ll never have to make another decision. Adam Lipschitz, a Jew, wants to marry a Jewish girl to please his family, but can’t get a date to save his life. After meeting at a Jewish singles mixer, Adam and Chris form a secret pact. Chris promises that he will help Adam find the Jewish girl of his dreams and show him “Jewtopia”, but only if Adam will help Chris shed his gentile-ness and bring him undercover into the Jewish world.
“We have been waiting for two years to do this show. And trust me, it’s laugh out loud funny. This is one comedy you don’t want to miss”, exclaims REP Co-Artistic Director, Ovington Michael Owston.
