PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Neil Simon provides a peek behind the scenes of TV's golden age in this hit Broadway comedy, which is based on Simon's own time spent on the writing staff of Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows. Set in 1953, the play depicts a harried comedy writing staff frantically scrambling to top each other with gags while vying for the attention of star madman, Max Prince. Max's habit of boozing and popping too many pills is growing under the pressures of rising McCarthyism, network executives and sponsors who want him to cut back his "too-smart" staff so they can chase after the Leave It to Beaver audience. A skillful mix of nostalgia, laughter, classic Catskills humor, colorful characters and more, Laughter on the 23rd Floor remains an enduring classic from Simon, a master of the form. Las Vegas actor, director, and producer Gus Langley joins a talented ensemble of Metropolitan Atlanta Theatre Award winners and nominated actors to portray characters based on comic legends Mel Brooks, Danny Simon, Mel Tolkin and Carl Reiner.
