‘Jewtopia’ recoups Off B’way

Previews to begin in Chicago, Coral Springs, Detroit

Off Broadway comedy “Jewtopia” will officially recoup its $625,000 capitalization Sunday, just 20 weeks after it began previews at the Westside Theater.

Exec producer Bill Franzblau says the production has never had a losing week, including the four preview weeks, grossing between the mid-$60,000s and the low $100,000s every week. Advance for the production stands at more than $250,000.

Franzblau says a concurrent commercial production will begin previews March 22 at Chicago’s Mercury Theater, and a third production will launch at the Broward Stage Door Theater in Coral Springs, Fla., in July. A Detroit production is being planned for the fall. The capitalization for each production will be $400,000-$500,000.

“Jewtopia’s” world premiere was a smaller production that began in spring 2003 in Los Angeles and ran for 16 months. The play, written by and starring Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson, is about a gentile guy who wants to marry a Jewish girl.
