YOU SAY TOMATO, I SAY SHUT UP!
A Love Story
Written by ANNABELLE GURWITCH and JEFF KAHN
With addition material by DAVID KOTELES
Directed by DARREN KATZ
After thirteen years of marriage, writers-actors-and real-life-married-couple Annabelle Gurwitch (“Dinner and a Movie,” Fired!) and Jeff Kahn (“The Ben Stiller Show,” Forty Year Old Virgin) have adapted their hilarious, often moving, memoir, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up for the stage. Directed by Darren Katz, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut will star Antoinette LaVecchia and Scott Richard Foster.
In their 75-minute tour de force, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up, take a humorous look at a relationship that seemed doomed by opposing personalities from the start. After trials and tribulations they learn to navigate the conflicts that come with romance, money, and children by embracing each other’s differences, taking on parenting as a competitive sport, and dropping out of couple’s therapy. Their delightfully crazy lifestyle has managed to keep their relationship intact, up-ending every idea you ever had about living “happily ever after.”
This uproariously funny story is sure to strike both laughter and terror into the hearts of any couple (not to mention every single man or woman who is contemplating the connubial state). The book was developed through sold-out performances at The Comedy Central Theatre and at Upright Citizens Brigade in Los Angeles and made its New York premiere at The New York Comedy Festival 2009. Recent engagements have included Caroline’s on Broadway and Joe’s Pub, additional material for the stage show is written by award winning playwright David Koteles.
