Jason Alexander directs comedy in Boca

Directed by Jason Alexander, of "Seinfeld" fame, "When You're in Love, the Whole World Is Jewish" is a throwback to G-rated lampoons found on two comedy albums from 1965 and 1966. Producer Billy Riback explains why he and co-producer Danny Gold decided to mount the show: "We were both weaned on classic comedy. And the albums 'You Don't Have To Be Jewish' and 'When You're in Love, the Whole World Is Jewish' were gut-bustingly funny way back then, and because of the timeless nature of the comedy … they remain just as hilarious today." The jokes, skits and songs are strung together in a plot centered on a young Jewish man who, wanting to marry his gentile girlfriend who knows nothing of his faith, gets a tutorial for her from his rabbi.
