Laughter on the 23rd Floor


  • Newport Theater Arts Center (map)

a fictionalized look at the backstage chaos involved in producing one of the landmarks of television’s golden age. Inspired by Simon’s own early career experience as a junior writer for Your Show of Shows, Laughter focuses on the temperamental star, modeled after Sid Caesar, and the writers of the TV comedy-variety show in the 1950s, ‘Regarded as one of Simon’s funniest plays!’
