Previews for Born Yesterday began March 31, at Broadway's Cort Theatre. Directed by Doug Hughes, this revival of Garson Kanin's award-winning comedy about sex and politics opened last night, Easter Sunday, April 24 and BroadwayWorld.com was there!

Emmy Award nominee Jim Belushi ("According to Jim," "The Defenders"), Tony Award winner Robert Sean Leonard (Best Featured Actor for The Invention of Love), and Outer Critics' Circle nominee Nina Arianda ("A breakout performance-one of the highlights of the year" Charles Isherwood, The New York Times for Venus in Fur) head the cast in Born Yesterday. Tony Award-winner Doug Hughes (Doubt) directs this timeless and timely story of a not-so-honest businessman and a not-so-dumb blonde out to "capitalize" on everything Washington has to offer.

Rounding out the cast of Born Yesterday are Frank Wood (Tony winner for Sideman), Terry Beaver (Tony nominee for The Last Night of Ballyhoo), Patricia Hodges (A Man for All Seasons), Michael McGrath (Tony nominee for Spamalot), Fred Arsenault, Bill Christ, Jennifer Regan, Liv Rooth, Danny Rutigliano, Andrew Weems, and Robert Emmet Lunney.

Born Yesterday had its New York premiere on February 4, 1946 at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre, starring Paul Douglas, Judy Holliday, and Gary Merrill, and produced by Max Gordon. It became an instant hit, ran for 1,642 performances (moving to the Henry Miller's Theatre), and remains the seventh longest running play in Broadway history. The play was adapted to the screen in 1950 with Judy Holliday winning an Academy Award for repeating her stage triumph, this time alongside Broderick Crawford and William Holden with George Cukor directing. Born Yesterday was revived on Broadway in 1989, starring Ed Asner and Madeline Kahn, and ran for five months, following a national tour.
