By Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kahn
After fifteen years of marriage, TV personalities and real-life-married-couple; authors, Annabelle Gurwitch (host of TBS' Dinner and a Movie and author of NY Times Best Seller "I See You Made An Effort") and Emmy Award Winner Jeff Kahn (The Ben Stiller Show, Forty Year Old Virgin) have adapted their hilarious and often moving memoir, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up!, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up! "strikes directly to the funny bone" (Charlotte Observer) by offering a hilarious glimpse into a relationship that seems doomed by opposing personalities from the start. After trials and tribulations they learn to navigate the conflicts that come with romance, money, and children by embracing each other's differences, taking on parenting as a competitive sport, and dropping out of couple's therapy.

The show is performed by another real life married couple, veteran actors Mara Newbery Greer & Mike Greer. Directed by Broadway Director/Producer Van Kaplan (An American in Paris).
