Ocean State Theatre
1/29-2/16/2014
In January, Ocean State Theatre will help beat the winter doldrums with Neil Simon's Broadway hit, Laughter on the 23rd Floor. Chaos is king backstage at '"The Max Prince Show," a popular 1950s comedy-variety TV series. The stress of slipping ratings is eating Max alive, but his harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags, while competing for the attention of the star madman. Inspired by the playwright's youthful experience as a staff writer with Mel Brooks, Danny Simon, Mel Tolkin, and Larry Gelbart on Sid Caesar's "Your Show of Shows," Neil Simon re-creates the mayhem, neuroses, nonstop gags and constant one-upmanship of a team of brilliantly funny social misfits.
