LAUGHTER ON THE 23rd FLOOR

STARRING EMMY-NOMINATED ACTOR

JUDGE REINHOLD

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

SEPTEMBER 27-OCTOBER 16, 2022

In the writers’ room of The Max Prince Show, zingers are the name of the game; the harried staff scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of their star madman. Inspired by Neil Simon’s experience as a young staff writer on Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows, this comedy about comedy features a hysterical performance from Judge Reinhold, in his Rep debut.

Rated R for adult language.

“Judge Reinhold is a very affable actor, a charming combination of Daffy Duck and Jimmy Stewart.”

-Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

“One of [Simon’s] funniest… Comedy, comedy all the way.”

“Luck be a lady!”

GUYS & DOLLS

Based on a Story and Characters by Damon Runyan
Music & Lyrics by Frank Loesser
Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows

NOVEMBER 29-DECEMBER 30, 2022

With its brassy, immortal score, this oddball romantic comedy is considered by many to be the perfect musical. Will Nathan Detroit find a location for the secret craps game? Will Adelaide finally get a wedding after her fourteen-year engagement? Will what happened in Havana, stay in Havana? This fun, new production, filled with exciting choreography, is the perfect outing for family and friends during the holiday season.

Rated PG for adult situations.

“An artistic triumph. The perfect musical comedy.”

“#1: Ice Cream
#2: Kung Fu movies
#3: Staying up past your bedtime…”

EVERY BRILLIANT THING

By Duncan Macmillan with Johnny Donahoe

JANUARY 31-MARCH 19, 2023

You’re six years old. Mom’s in the hospital. She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s “brilliant” about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. As you grow, the list will take on a life of its own. Hilarious and heart-wrenching, this critically-acclaimed play is a unique, theatrical experience you will never forget.

Taking place in The Rep’s “Black Box” performance space, the capacity for this production is strictly limited. Only season subscribers will be guaranteed to attend!

Rated PG-13 for adult situations.

“Finds a perfect balance between conveying the struggles of life, and celebrating all that is sweet in it.”

“Suddenly, Seymour.”

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

Book & Lyrics by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken
Based on the film by Roger Corman, Screenplay by Charles Griffith

APRIL 4-30, 2023

There’s a new breed of plant in town — foul-mouthed… R&B-singing… carnivorous. And if Seymour doesn’t stop “Audrey II”, it just might take over the world! Don’t miss a fresh, new vision of this ridiculous, beloved musical, from the Associate Choreographer of Broadway’s Hamilton. You’ll laugh. You’ll scream. You’ll give up gardening for good.

Rated PG for adult situations and violence.

“Order up!”

CLYDE’S

By Lynn Nottage

JUNE 6-25, 2023

In this stirring new play, direct from Broadway, a truck stop sandwich shop offers its formerly incarcerated kitchen staff a shot at reclaiming their lives.  Even as the shop’s callous owner tries to keep them under her thumb, the staff members are given purpose and permission to dream through their shared quest to create the perfect sandwich.

Rated R for adult language and situations.

“Critics Pick! Though it’s still about dark things (including prison, drugs, homelessness, and poverty), this delightful new play somehow turns them into bright comedy.”

FLEX tells the story of a girls’ high school basketball team from Plainnole, Arkansas. It’s 1997, and the women of the Lady Train team are inspired by the successes of the WNBA. With aspirations of going pro, they must first navigate the pressures of being young, Black, and female in rural Arkansas. Will their fouls off the court tear their team apart? Or can they keep their pact to stick together through hell or high water? This powerful new play celebrates the fierce athleticism of women’s basketball with all the adrenaline and swagger of a four-quarter game.

Rated R for adult language and adult situations.
