Stage Door Players Presents LAUGHTER ON THE 23RD FLOOR Photo Stage Door Players Presents LAUGHTER ON THE 23RD FLOOR
by Stephi Wild - Jun 20, 2019

STAGE DOOR PLAYERS rounds out their Sapphire Season of Celebration with Neil Simon's LAUGHTER ON THE 23RD FLOOR. Inspired by the playwright's experience as a young staff writer on Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows, LAUGHTER is highly considered the funniest of Simon's biography plays, with all the attendant comic drama as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman 'Max Prince'. Max, meanwhile, is in the middle of his own battle with NBC executives over what sort of humor 'Middle America' is hungry for. Beyond the slapstick humor, the play itself notable not only for its insider's look into the world of television comedy writing, but also for its reflection of the political and social ecosystem of its time.(Contains Mature Language)

CHURCH GIRLS Opens At The Incline Theater With Side Splitting Laughs Photo CHURCH GIRLS Opens At The Incline Theater With Side Splitting Laughs
by A.A. Cristi - Jun 6, 2019

Last night's opening of CHURCH GIRLS, the musical, at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater was a hilarious journey through the crazy and satirical world of religion, politics, and slapstick comedy. CHURCH GIRLS, most definitely, is the funniest show that I have seen in the past five years. Is it silly? Yes. Is it over the top? Yes. Is it worth seeing? Yes. CHURCH GIRLS is the newest and funniest addition to the long line of satirical plays going after those people who use religion for their own means. NUNSENSE may be more refined, but CHURCH GIRLS is funnier.
