Esteemed playwright Ken Ludwig, winner of multiple Tony and Olivier Awards, introduced his newest piece at The McCarter Theater Center in Princeton, New Jersey. KEN LUDWIG'S THE GODS OF COMEDY opened to rapturous laughter and a receptive audience thanks to a bright production and terrific performances. THE GODS OF COMEDY opens, appropriately enough, in the birthplace of Western theater. In modern day Greece, we are introduced to Daphne (played by Shay Vawn), a young, career-oriented, tenure-track classics professor working on a translation and performance of Euripides' MADEA for her thesis. Although the set and lighting are fantastic in the short opening scene, and the play centers around Greek theater and mythology, the introduction is light on humor and there isn't proper motivation to set it away from the rest of the show.

A young Classics professor puts her career-and her love life-in peril, and calls on the gods of Ancient Greece to save her. Things don't go according to plan when the gods who show up are The Gods of Comedy!
