What's Happening Around Town for January 6, 2013


Jason Alexander Directs New Musical Revue
When You're In Love, The Whole World Is Jewish will have its world premiere at the Greenway Court Theatre Feb. 2 -March 10. Directed by Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander, the comedy/musical revue celebrates the love of comedy and of cherished childhood memories. Based on several ground-breaking comedy albums, the 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.” 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.  Click Here for tickets and more information  or call (323) 656-7679 x 100.
