Cultures, families, manners, morals and attire all clash in the witty comedy Black Tie. Written by award-winning and prolific playwright A.R. Gurney, Black Tie finds father of the groom Curtis simply attempting to deliver a memorable toast. But before he can do that, he must defend his time-honored approach -- and his attire. The announcement of a surprise guest throws things into further disarray as Curtis tries to balance the influence of his late father and the needs of his new family. Learn More

This show was very funny and clever. It is a typical British comedy, the kind with several doors slamming, characters coming in and out, mistaken identity, and lots of laughs.
I saw this show a year ago, and surprisingly, this was the same exact cast that I saw then, but with a different actress playing the maid! I would definitely recommend this show, especially if you are a fan of the 60's and the style and glamour of air travel.

So in general, it was a pretty funny play. It does start off a bit slow, so just come with some patience, but there are a few instances where the comedic timing was perfect. Robert is the real star of the show, and the actor we saw playing him seemed to be channeling Sheldon from Big Bang Theory (in terms of nerdiness not science-smarts), which worked most of the time. The venue is nice and small, so even though we were a couple rows from the back, we could see everything.

This hilarious 1960's romp, immortalized by Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis on film, has a handsome bachelor juggling three international flight attendant fiancées. In this comedy, an architect living in Paris has been successfully juggling three flight attendant fiancées with his housekeeper reluctantly playing romantic air-traffic controller as they fly in and out of his swank bachelor pad. But when an old school pal visits, things get rather turbulent. Schedules change, flights are delayed and chaos ensues in this whirl of mayhem and matchmaking.
This classic farce was written in the 1960’s by French playwright Marc Camoletti. An English translation became a smash hit in London’s West End, and a recent Broadway revival brought it to the attention of an American audience.
