- Laughter on The 23rd Floor opened January 21 and runs through February 18. “Inspired by the playwright’s youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows,” this Neil Simon favorite depicts the harried writing staff as they frantically scramble to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman Max Prince. Filled with nostalgia, classic Catskills humor, and colorful characters, Laughter on the 23rd Floor is bound to have you… well… laughing.” (Keegan Theatre)

With an ear attuned to current events, watch the gals try to take America (a)back to a place it never was by out- pandering, out-conspiracy theorizing, and out-outlandishing even the most cynical of the current crop of Presidential candidates, all in glorious, tongue-in-cheek four-part harmony.” (Theater J)
