Quotes & Highlights
“A resplendent revival.” -Daily News
“There’s no people like show people…George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber’s tart valentine to show biz…glittering zingers are made to shine.” —L.A. Times
“A love letter to - and sendup of — life in the theatre…Wonderful to behold." —Hollywood Reporter
Meet the Cavendishes, the first family of the American stage, as they sword-fight, swoon, and act their way through their daily lives, proving the old axiom, the show — and the family — must go on. Kaufman and Ferber’s 1927 classic comedy is fast-paced, uproarious, and full of larger than life eccentrics.
“The Royal Family” is a fond valentine of the then-reigning stage family in America, the Barrymores. It is the first of six collaborations between George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber — two of the greatest names in 20th century American literature.
Their most popular works together include “The Royal Family,” “Dinner at Eight” and “Stage Door”.

“Moments of high comedy, which Moore and his cast mine for all they’re worth. THE TOTAL EFFECT IS ENCHANTING.”
