Neil Simon’s hilarious and poignant memory play LAUGHTER ON THE 23rd FLOOR, based on his personal experience working as a young writer for the classic 1950’s comedy-variety TV series Your Show of Shows, returns to Kentwood Players in a new, energized production. Simon brings to life a vivid memoir of colorful and volatile personalities relying on their comedic talents to balance their private lives with high pressure careers. Simon’s 28th play is one of his best: a blend of unforgettable characters laced with an exclusive insight into the era known as The Golden Age of Television. Join us for this perfect nostalgic getaway full of hilarity about the good old days! Please note: due to adult language, parental discretion is advised.
