Solomon will play a week of performances — through April 25 — while current star Paul Kreppel vacations. In a recent statement Solomon said, "After a year on the road, what a thrill it is to come home to New York where it all began. While I've been touring the show, Paul Kreppel has been giving a brilliant performance playing 'Steve' at The Westside theatre. (Can you imagine playing me eight performances a week for a year? No wonder he needs a vacation!) I am looking forward to bringing my family from Sheepshead Bay back to my family on The Great White Way."

Italian + Jewish = Therapy, according to press notes, "relates to the wacky side of the human condition, combining comic voices, sound effects and astounding characters — bringing alive a myriad of people from all walks of life."

Show times are Tuesdays at 7 PM, Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8 PM with matinees Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 3 PM.

The Westside Theatre is located in Manhattan at 407 West 43rd Street. Tickets, priced $61.25-$71.25, are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com.
