This was hysterical. Writing is crisp and acting was very good. It helps if you know some yiddish but they do give you a translation in the program.

I think from the audience reaction, you didn't have to be Jewish to appreciate the humor - but it certainly helped in making it that much more humorous.

Jewtopia was a lot of fun. It lived up to the reviews of a well acted comedy.

Description

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.
