It's half past one in the fabulously cluttered Cavendish duplex in the East Fifties, and anyone who's anyone is still asleep. So begins THE ROYAL FAMILY, the classic comedy of theatrical manners, written by two of the theatre's greatest writers, George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber. This devilishly funny play follows the famous family of stage stars as they go about the drama of the day. Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt) directs the fantastic cast, featuring Tony winner John Glover, Tony winner and Oscar nominee Rosemary Harris, Tony nominee Jan Maxwell and Tony nominee Reg Rogers.

Review - The Royal Family
by Kristin Salaky - October 19, 2009

In the 1920s, George S. Kaufman was one of the primary reasons New York was firmly establishing itself as the nation's capital of wit. Until his death in 1961, Kaufman could be called the quintessential New Yorker; continually working on Broadway as a playwright and director, reluctantly venturing out to Hollywood on occasion and regretting every moment of it and frequently quoted for his crackling cleverness ('I understand your new play is full of single entendres.').
