You Say Tomato I Say Shut Up!

Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kaplan
Penn’s Landing Playhouse, located in the Independence Museum at 211 S. Columbia Blvd. and Walnut Streets is presenting You Say Tomato I Say Shut Up! through December 29.  There is a parking lot adjacent to the theatre venue which provides parking at reasonable rates, making a visit to this theatre a bargain for Philadelphia theatre-goers who drive to see performances. Comedy is not easy to perform.   With perseverance a competent actor can study a comedic script and present a credible performance.  Other actors can see the humor in every situation and project that humor to all who come into contact with them. When two such actors meet and subsequently marry, watch out!  Nothing is sacred.  After Annabelle Gurwitch was canned by Woody Allen, she turned her experience into an off-Broadway play, a touring show, a book and a documentary film entitled Fired!  Emmy-Award winning writer Jeff Kaplan made contributions to her work.  Their present work You Say Tomato, I say Shut Up! is funny because it rings true. Detailing their relationship from their engagement through their 10th wedding anniversary, Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kaplan leave no holds barred. No matter what your relationship status is, you will find some disagreement that happens on the stage has happened to you.  This causes laughter to abound.  More quips are traded back and forth on the stage and more laughter ensues again and again and again.  You may not want to say shut up (maybe you want use even stronger language) and you may not care how to pronounce tomato, but you will want to see this enjoyable show that makes you leave the theatre smiling.  For tickets, call 855-488-7469 or visit online at
