McCarthy’s blacklist, the FBI, a big bully Television Network, and a who’s who of comedy legends-to-be. It’s the 1950s in America and the fight to be funny is on. Neil Simon’s classic comedy, Laughter on the 23rd Floor, takes us to the legendary writer’s room for Sid Caesar’s variety comedy program Your Show of Shows. Laughter on the 23rd Floor is a fabled account of how writers Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, Carl Reiner, Larry Gelbart, and others matched wit to wit and punchline to punchline to make comedy history.
When: April 7–May 8, 2011
Where: Plays and Players Theatre, 1714 Delancey St., Philadelphia, PA 19103
