‘Laughter on the 23rd Floor’ at the Adobe Theater
Laughter on the 23rd Floor, hosted by Adobe Theater, includes playwright Neil Simon’s experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows. A small group of comedy writers and their leader conspire each week to lampoon current news, satirize historical events, and take on the world through the new and magical medium of television. The show places emphasis on the former Senator McCarthy era and what it’s like to write comedy and be part of the comedy writing family. Sunday matinée is sold out, but tickets are still available for Friday and Saturday’s evening performances.
Details: Runs until February 24 at the Adobe Theater. Friday and Saturday evening performances start at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m.
