ABOUT THE PLAY: Sarah is a nice Jewish girl with a problem: her parents want her married to a nice Jewish boy. They have never met her boyfriend, a WASP executive named Chris Kringle. She tells them she is dating a Jewish doctor and they insist on meeting him. She plans a dinner party and, over the heated protests of Chris, employs an escort service to send her a Jewish date to be Dr. Steinberg. Instead, they send Bob Schroeder, an aspiring actor who agrees to perform the impersonation. Happily, he is extremely convincing in the role and Sarah's parents are enraptured. Soon, even Sarah falls for Bob.
Directed by Amy Levine, the cast includes Liat Perelman, Stephen Belfatti,. Eric Harper, Lincoln Richman, Terrie Copeland and Jack Rosmarin. Stage manager is Aaron Ratzan, and producer is Barbara Gurskey.
