AWARD-WINNING COMEDIAN comedian and actress Rita Rudner and Laguna Beach’s resident rock star, cantor Jason Feddy join together for the premiere of the world’s first unromantic comedy at Laguna Playhouse for a limited time only!
They say opposites attract. They haven’t met Tom and Wendy. Forced together by a computer error, freewheeling Tom and uptight Wendy do their best to ruin each other’s vacations. Will they get to know each other well enough to reveal the real reasons behind their travel? Will they agree on sleeping arrangements? Will room service ever arrive? Written by Rita Rudner and Martin Bergman, who directs this production, “Two’s A Crowd” pairs Rita with “Phantom of the Opera’s” Davis Gaines in this brand new musical comedy. Music and lyrics are by Jason Feddy, who also serves as musical director and will be playing live on stage as part of a live four-piece band.
A house-filling favorite in Las Vegas, Rita Rudner is known for her epigrammatic one-liners. She started off on Broadway and film before becoming Las Vegas’s Comedian of the Year nine years in a row. Her 2008 “Rita Rudner: Live From Las Vegas” was PBS’s first ever stand-up comedy special. Rita is also a bestselling author, having written five books. She is a frequent collaborator with her writer/producer husband of 30 years, Martin Bergman. This is their first time teaming up with musician Jason Feddy, whose career has seen him open for artists such as Neil Young, Tears For Fears and The Cranberries. Jason has produced six solo albums of original songs, and has developed “Shakespeare’s Fool” with songs based on the plays of William Shakespeare. Currently, Jason is a cantor soloist at Temple Isaiah of Newport Beach and a regular music contributor for the Jewish Collaborative of Orange County.
