A new musical comedy, When You’re In Love, The Whole World Is Jewish, will open Friday at the Greenway Court Theatre. The play is based on classic 1960s comedy albums and is directed by Seinfeld star Jason Alexander.
Here is information from the play’s representatives:
When You’re In Love, The Whole World Is Jewish is more than an expression; it is now the name of a new comedy/musical revue. The show will have its world premiere at the Greenway Court Theatre in Los Angeles on February 1st and will run through March 10th. For tickets and more information, see here.
The Greenway Court Theatre is located at 544 N. Fairfax Avenue, next to Fairfax High School. Free Parking is available in the lot adjacent to the theatre. Tickets are $34.99 (such a deal). Showtimes are 8:00 PM Thursday through Saturday, and 7:00 PM on Sundays.
When You’re In Love is truly a labor of love – the love of comedy and of cherished childhood memories. Based on several ground-breaking comedy albums, this material has never been seen live until now. Producers Danny Gold and Billy Riback decided to mount the show for one simple reason: “We were both weaned on classic comedy,” said Riback, “and the albums “You Don’t Have To Be Jewish,” and “When You’re In Love, The Whole World Is Jewish,” were gut-bustingly funny way back then, and because of the timeless nature of the comedy, part character study, part self-effacing lampooning, but always sweet-natured and good-hearted, they remain just as hilarious today.”
