BWW Review: THE NERD at George Street Playhouse is Laugh Out Loud Fun

Everybody needs a good laugh, and that's just what you will get when you attend The Nerd, now being performed at George Street Playhouse (GSP) through May 20. Written by Larry Shue and superbly directed by Kevin Cahoon, the play has an awesome cast that channels Shue's comic genius into 2 hours of sheer fun. The Nerd is the coolest show in town!

Photo Flash: First Look at THE NERD at George Street Playhouse

Awkwardness reaches hilarious new heights in the final show of our season, The Nerd. When an unexpected party guest (played by 2 Broke Girls' Jonathan Kite) turns into an unwanted house guest, Willum (Modern Family's Colin Hanlon) executes an elaborate plan to rid himself of the wacky nuisance. Aided by a rag-tag team that includes friends, a would-be lover and an oblivious boss, creative acts of desperation quickly dissolve into utter mayhem and merriment. The twists and turns of this madcap comedy lead to an ending that leaves you feeling happily hoodwinked!
