News Off-Broadway's Jewtopia Hits Performance 800 Aug. 29 Off-Broadway's comedy Jewtopia reaches 800 performances at New York's Westside Theater, Aug. 29.

John Tillinger (Say Goodnight, Gracie) directs the Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson comedy, Jewtopia, which began Off-Broadway Sept. 28, 2004 and opened Oct. 21.

Jewtopia follows the story of two single guys — a Jew and a gentile — on the verge of turning 30 who are obsessed with dating women of the other's religion. The two devise a plan to help both their causes — the Jewish man's quest to make his family happy and the gentile's mission to find a Jewish girl so he never needs to make another decision.

The original New York cast featured writers Fogel and Wolfson along with Cheryl David, Lorry Goldman, Irina Pantaeva, Jackie Tohn and Gerry Vichi. The work — which sold out its long run in Los Angeles, recouped its initial $625,000 capitalization for the Off-Broadway run in 20 weeks.

WEJ Productions and Jenkay present Jewtopia. The popular Jewish-Gentile comedy opened May 8, 2003, in California and enjoyed a year long run filled with sold out performances.

The design team of Jewtopia includes Patrick Fahey (set), Mike Baldassari (lighting), Cynthia Nordstrom (costume) and Kevin Lacy (sound). Tickets to Jewtopia at The Westside Theatre, 407 West 43rd Street, (between Ninth and Tenth Ave.) are available by calling (212) 239-6200. For more information, visit
