was originally produced Off-Broadway by Do Gooder Productions
(Mark Robert Gordon, Founding Artistic/Executive Director). The Off-Broadway production began previews on December 4, 1998, it opened December 11, 1998 and closed November 14, 1999. The critically-acclaimed, 11-month run was one of the longest runs in Off-Broadway history of a show exclusively produced by a not-for-profit theater company without commercial investment.
Subsequent to the Off-Broadway production, Do Gooder Productions licensed the following productions of the play to not-for-profit theaters:
Hollywood Playhouse (Hollywood, FL) - 2000
Factory Theatre (Cleveland, OH) and Actors' Summit (Akron, OH) - 2000-01
Apple Tree Theatre (Highland Park, IL) - 2001
"21/2 Jews" Productions is the official commercial producer and licensor of the play. The company staged the first commercial productions of the play in Arizona in 2001 and that company of actors performed the initial commercial booking license at the Peggy & Yale Gordon Center for the Performing Arts (Owings Mills, MD) in 2001.
