The Right Kind of People by Charles Grodin is a biting send-up of a fashionable Fifth Avenue co-op board, where issues of race, gender and social status simmer just beneath the surface. This comedy, from the celebrated screen actor who made sarcasm and satire a legendary art, comes to Primary Stages following its world premiere at the Magic Theatre in San Francisco, where it was one of the highest grossing shows in that theatre's 37-year history.
