LAUGHTER ON THE 23rd FLOOR  by Neil Simon

September 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27
 
If there were any more laughs you'd have to come back again to hear them all.  Neil Simon has taken us back to relive his actual experiences as a writer on Sid Caesar's Show of Shows, a comedy-variety hour, Circa 1953. It's a joke factory that lets you in on the writing, fighting and wacky antics of these television pioneers and show business legends including Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Neil Simon, Woody Allen, and Larry Gelbart.
 
"Old style comedy; fast and furious."  --  The Wall Street Journal
 
"One of Simon's funniest…comedy,  comedy all the way."  -- -- Newsweek

 
CRITIC'S CHOICE by Ira Levin
 
March 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21
 
As The New York Times describes it: The hero is a drama critic.  What is the most searching way totest this paragon's integrity?  Have his wife write a play.  A stinker…naturally.  He heckles the little woman, tells her she won't finish the play, and when it is completed, candidly informs her that it is awful.  And what's worst of all, he insists that on opening night he will do his duty like a man; he'll review the play himself.  There you have the beginnings of the problem.  What will he do…protect his marriage or his integrity?  You'll laugh your head off all the way to the answer.

 "Fresh and funny."  --  The New York Times

 "A Broadway hit!"  -- The New York Daily News 

 
 
FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS by Alan Ball
 
April 30, May 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10
 
Audiences have cried with laughter at this comedy set in the home of the bride in Knoxville,  
Tennessee during the newly married couples overdone wedding reception.  The five bridesmaids have found refuge in the room of Meredith, the sister of the bride.  The women come to realize, among other things, that they, despite their differences, have more in common with each other than any of them do with the bride.  As the afternoon wears on, five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the woman's spirit.
 
"A wonderfully entertaining play"  --The New York Post
 
"A fresh as a daisy comedy, funny as can be" --  New York Daily News
