born yesterday graphic3This famous comedy, Born Yesterday by Garson Kanin, enjoyed one of the longest runs in history.  Millionaire junk man, Harry Brock, brings his beautiful, rough-around-the-edges girlfriend, Billie Dawn, with him to Washington, D.C.  When Billie's lack of social graces becomes a liability to Brock's business dealings, he hires a journalist, Paul Verrall, to educate her.  In the process of enlightenment, Billie painfully realizes the nature of Brock's crooked schemes.

 

Garson Kanin wrote Born Yesterday in 1946. A recent revival of Born Yesterday hit Broadway in 2011, with Nina Arianda and Jim Belushi. The 1950s stage-to-film adaptation stars Judy Holliday and William Holden. 


On May 15, the public is invited to a community conversation talkback.


Born Yesterday runs April 29th - May 22nd, 2016.

Show times are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. 

Direction by Matthew Byron Cassi
