Neil Simon's LAUGHTER ON THE 23rd FLOOROctober 25th - November 2nd Directed by Stacy Dumont
UNDENIABLY FUNNY! - The New York Times "One of Simon's funniest...Comedy, comedy all the way." - Newsweek
Based on Neil Simons experiences as a junior writer for Your Show of Shows, and set in 1953, the play follows the star/ host of a weekly comedy variety show Max Prince along with his staff of writers. Despite the shows ratings slightly slipping across the country, the Max Prince show remains a massive hit on the East Coast. Despite this, network executive Cal Weebs insists that the show is too sophisticated for people in the middle part of the country and has begun to urge Prince to make his act simpler for all audiences to understand. Or simply put, Prince needs to dumb down his act. Along with heckling from a local newspaper columnist, Princes life has begun to unravel. Follow Max and his staff as they take us on a trip inside the writers room and all the wacky antics and crazy arguments that happen on the 23rd floor.
