When You're In Love, The Whole World Is Jewish is more than an expression; it is now the name of a new comedy/musical revue, directed by Seinfeld's Jason Alexander. The show will have its world premiere at the Greenway Court Theatre in Los Angeles, February 8th through March 10th.

When You're In Love is truly a labor of love - the love of comedy and of cherished childhood memories. Based on several ground-breaking comedy albums, this 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."

With the world growing increasingly crude, rude, and mean-spirited, When You're In Love brings the best of this timeless material to life. There is nothing in this show that would offend a nun, assuming one would come, and yet somehow it's still funny. The producers felt "It
would be refreshing to have a show that shies away from those well-known four-letter words and colorful phrases, yet still manages to elicit belly laughs. We only hope you enjoy watching our show as much as we did putting it together."

"This opportunity was simply too good to pass up," added Gold. "We have the chance to bring truly classic and original comedy to a wide audience, and we can't wait to hear what you think."

The cast for When You're In Love, The Whole World Is Jewish is made up of Barry Gordon, Michael Pasternak, Ellen Ratner, Robert Shampain, Rena Strober and Jay Brian Winnick.
