Neil Simon’s “love letter” to his early career as a TV writer alongside the likes of comedy legends Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks, Laughter on the 23rd Floor follows the rollercoaster antics that catapult a not-your-average 1950s writers’ room into the comedy fray, as they frantically attempt to please their larger-than-life boss of a weekly comedy variety show. Locked in an ongoing battle with NBC executives, who fear the show’s humor is too sophisticated for Middle America, the writing and fighting of the team expose the social and political undercurrents of the 1950s—reflecting back the ongoing tensions in today’s America in this updated, reimagined production.
Laughter on the 23rd Floor is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Intended for an adult audience, may contain adult language and situations.
