Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Neil Simon provides a peek behind the scenes of TV's golden age in this hit Broadway comedy, which is based on Simon's own time spent on the writing staff of Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows. Set in 1953, the play depicts a harried comedy writing staff frantically scrambling to top each other with gags while vying for the attention of star madman Max Prince. Max's habit of boozing and popping too many pills is growing under the pressures of rising McCarthyism, network executives and sponsors who want him to cut back his "too-smart" staff so they can chase after the Leave It to Beaver audience. A skillful mix of nostalgia, laughter and colorful characters, Laughter on the 23rd Floor remains an enduring classic from Simon, a master of the form. Learn More
“I would rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.” – Excerpt from Steel Magnolias
You loved the movie, now see the original. Jo Twiss and Jennie Eisenhower lead a cast of BRT favorites who bring you the laughs and all the tears that come along with the company of the lovable, zany women of Chinquapin Parish, Louisiana. Set entirely in the beauty parlor of Truvy Jones, you’ll be one of the gang as you share in the love, the laughs, the joy and even the insults. This is the unforgettable story of six southern women who stand together laughing in order to survive the tears.
Directed by Susan D. Atkinson
