A very fun show. The entire audience was laughing outloud throughout. There are lots of generalities that I found myself agreeing with, like how often I talk to my mother in a single day! Yup, it's true. Little things like that. It's a fun,...continued

The show was entertaining but not outstanding. I think if you are Jewish or have Jewish friends you may enjoy it more but non Jews certainly can understand most of the jokes.

Quotes & Highlights

“Outrageously funny!” —Los Angeles Times
“Unstoppable! One of the biggest and most improbable hits!” —New York Times
“After a quarter-century of Neil Simon and his imitators, the playwrights redeem the formula with edge!  The result is irresistible.  The script throws every ingredient on hand into the comedic chicken soup!” —Time Out New York_ _


Jewtopia, written by Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson, 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. Stereotypes collide, cultures clash and chaos ensues!
