You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up!

Performing at Broward Center for the Performing Arts - Amaturo Theater (Mar 14 - Mar 16)


The longest running play in American theater history is coming to town and it's sure to be shear fun!

After fifteen years of marriage, TV personalities 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 and often moving memoir of the same name for the stage. You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up! "strikes directly to the funny bone" -Charlotte Observer by offering a hilarious glimpse into a relationship that seems doomed by opposing personalities from the start. Gurwitch and Kahn's delightfully crazy lifestyle manages to keep their relationship intact, up-ending every idea you ever had about living 'happily ever after'.

Critics are raving about You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up!, calling Gurwitch and Kahn the "Lucy and Desi of the Apatow age!" (Marie Claire Magazine), and saying "Tomato Delivers by the Pound!" -Des Moines Register, "Extremely Funny! The 80 minute play flies by and in the end neither Gurwitch nor Kahn win... the winner is the audience!" -Buffalo News. Arts a la Mode describes it as: "A quirky true-to-life comedy and a candid look at the inside of a marriage. Jeff and Annabelle find humor in the truth about themselves, their parenting skills, and what it really takes to survive marriage and cross the finish line with a wine glass in one hand and your sanity in the other."
