Directed by Judy Garey, and inspired by Simon's own early-career experience churning out jokes for Sid Caesar's "Your Show of Shows," Laughter on the 23rd Floor provides a hilarious, behind-the-scenes look at the making of a 1950s television variety show.
Re-creating the neuroses, nonstop gags, and constant one-upmanship of a team of brilliant and funny social misfits, Laughter chronicles the pressures of trying to please nervous television executives amid the growing fear of McCarthyism. (Note: Contains adult language.)
July 8-25, Wed-Sat. @ 8pm, Sun @ 2pm.
