reviews - YOU SAY TOMATO, I SAY SHUT UP! - Herberger Theater Center

"a humorous and heartfelt look into romance, love, parenting, and the love/hate relationship within relationships. There are numerous laugh out loud moments in the witty script. But just as many times when you'll find yourself identifying with the less humorous situations and life lessons that the characters have encountered.  Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kahn have found a way to not only portray some of their very personal experiences on stage but have them solidly connect with the audience. While it might be a "wart's and all" view of relationships, it is also an honest, very funny and realistic view that anyone will relate to." - Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway (click here to read the complete review)

"It takes a keen and even jaded eye to penetrate the rituals of courtship and wedlock and reveal their hidden and sometimes subversive male and female subtexts. In a brilliantly crafted script, the husband and wife team of Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kahn have more than risen to the challenge with their high voltage comic epiphany, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up!  It is refreshing when a theatrical offering like You Say Tomato can remind us through humor of the "the canyon of ignorance that cuts across every human relationship" and what we must do to remove the impediments to honest communication." -Herbert Paine, Broadway World (click here to read the complete review)
