Italian+Jewish=Therapy to Move to New Theatre


Beginning Friday, May 4th, Steve Solomon's hit comedy, My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish and I'm in Therapy, takes up residence at its new home, Westside Theatre Downstairs (407 West 43rd Street).  The comedy will continue to play at The Little Shubert Theatre (422 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Aves), through Sunday, April 29th. 

"The Jews have always been a nomadic people and the Italians don't like to stray too far from the old neighborhood, so I suppose it was inevitable that we'd be moving to a new theatre just one block away," jokes Solomon.   "We are so thrilled with audiences response to this show. We initially planned to run for only 12 weeks at The Little Shubert Theatre. We extended the run twice, but due to popular demand, we have decided that our show will no longer be a limited-engagement.  We look forward to continuing our open-ended run at out new home at the Westside Theatre."

"Twice the holidays!  Twice the hollering! Twice the guilt!  After sold-out engagements around the country, Rodger Hess, Abby Koffler, Howard Rapp, Arnold Graham and Ed Frankel present the hit comedy, My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish and I'm in Therapy.  One part lasagna, one part kreplach and two parts prozac, Italian+Jewish=Therapy is written by and stars Steve Solomon and directed by John Bowab (Legends!, The Unsinkable Molly Brown)," state press notes. The scenic design is by Ray Klausen; Lighting design by Brian Nason; and sound design by Carl Casella.   At certain performances, the role of 'Steve' is played by Paul Kreppe

"Having headlined throughout the United States and Europe for over twenty years, Solomon's stories relate 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. Italian+Jewish=Therapy has toured in over 50 cities around the United States, Canada and Bermuda, playing to sold out audiences and return engagements."
