Experience the hilarity and high-wire act of writing a 1950s live TV comedy hit. Before there was Saturday Night Live, there was Your Show of Shows, watched in 60 million homes every Saturday night. Inspired by the early television career of America’s beloved playwright, Neil Simon, Laughter on the 23rd Floor takes you into the wild writers’ room with characters based on comedy legends Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, and Sid Caesar. Enjoy Judge Reinhold in his Rep debut. Laughter on the 23rd Floor will be a theatrical experience you’ll never forget.

Starring Emmy-Nominated Actor Judge Reinhold

(Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Beverly Hills Cop, The Santa Clause, Seinfeld)
