WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Flappers. Prohibition. Hot Jazz. It's the height of the Roaring Twenties, and there's a new kid in town. The town is sophisticated New York City, and the kid is some homespun hick wannabe determined to make a name for himself as a journalist by impressing the funniest and most famous writers on Broadway. But it's going take more than a sharp tongue to triumph in a literal — and literate — battle of wits with notorious wise-crackers like Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley and George S. Kaufman. The Roaring Twenties come roaring back to life when Hollywood's The Three Clubs is transformed into New York's legendary Algonquin Hotel during the Age of Wonderful Nonsense, when the brightest lights on Broadway gathered almost daily to one-up one another with their caustic quips and clever conversation, in this smarty-pants new comedy from acclaimed writer Steven Vlasak and director Dig Wayne.
