Playing May 13-22
ABOUT THE SHOW
Inspired by the Neil Simon's youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows, this ensemble comedy features all the attendant comic drama as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman Max Prince. The play is notable not only for its insider’s look at the personalities and processes of television comedy writing, but also for its reflection of the political and social undercurrents of its time, in particular the rise of Joseph McCarthy, relationships between various (European) American ethnicities, and attitudes toward women.
The show opens May 13th, mark your calendars for hilarity!
