About a year ago, I managed to take in a performance of Jewtopia, the Off Broadway play written and starting Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson. While it definitely had a bunch of laugh-out-loud moments, the play itself was full of "inside Jewish jokes" (if that makes sense), making it hard (I imagine) for someone who was not Jewish to enjoy it. Luckily, my family and I have dabbled in Judaism enough to understand and appreciate Jewtopia's humor.

Seeing as the show was a big hit in both New York and L.A., I'm not surprised to see that Fogel and Wolfson hit the Hollywood streets with a screenplay based on their play. Producer Tucker Tooley has just optioned Chris O'Connell and Adam Lipschitz Lose Their Religion with hopes to develop it into a feature film. Fogel and Wolfson will star in the pic which revolves around two thirty-something men who fall in love with women outside their religion. Anyone see the play? Do you think it would do well as a movie?
