Penn alum Courtney Mizel (W’95, Bloomers) produced the film adaptation of the L.A. stage production of Jewtopia and it is being released in theaters and on demand on 9/20.
Inspired from the international smash hit play seen by over a million people, Jewtopia‘s got lots of stars including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jon Lovitz, Rita Wilson, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Wendie Malick, Nicollette Sheridan, Tom Arnold, Phil Rosenthal, Peter Stormare, Camryn Manheim, Ivan Sergei, Joel David Moore, Christine Lakin, Hayes MacArthur and Lin Shaye.
The story is about Christian O’Connell (Sergei) and Adam Lipschitz (Moore) — two childhood friends who reunite as adults to help each other land the women of their dreams. Chris wants to marry Allison (Hewitt), a Jewish girl, so that he’ll never have to make another decision for as long as he lives. Adam is on the verge of getting married to Hannah (Sigler), a woman he is not content with. When Chris enlists Adam’s help in pretending to be Jewish so that Allison will date him, cultures collide and chaos ensues!
