Born Yesterday

By Garson Kanin
Directed by David Darlow
March 22, 2017 – April 30, 2017

Classic American underdog Billie begins to question corruption’s stranglehold on the disadvantaged when she awakens to a world full of new possibilities. Playing for over 1,600 performances in its Broadway debut and earning 5 Academy Award and 3 Golden Globe nominations for its film adaptation, Garson Kanin’s delightful and dangerous comedy asks who will survive the Washington political machine- brains, beauty, or brawn?
