An Unlikely Hit

Chris O'Connell is a self-loathing gentile who says he wants to marry a Jewish girl so that he will not have to make a decision for the rest of his life. His childhood friend, Adam Lipschitz, offers to guide him into the world of what else? domineering mothers and subjects to avoid in front of potential Jewish in-laws, like power tools, Garth Brooks, Nascar races, Republican politics, Miracle Whip and "The Passion of the Christ."

Out of this myriad of stereotypes, two 30-year-old comedians, Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson, have written a play with the unfortunate title of "Jewtopia" that has become one of the biggest and most improbable theatrical hits in Los Angeles.

The show, which also stars Mr. Fogel and Mr. Wolfson, opened last May at the 99-seat Coast Playhouse in West Hollywood, and has been sold out nearly every weekend. (Nineteen folding chairs are usually hauled in for each performance.) Tentatively set to close in late June, the play is scheduled to move to New York in late summer.
