About this show

Enter Laughing by Joseph Stein Adapted from Carl Reiner's novel Directed by David Allen George

The semiautobiographical, riotous account of stagestruck young David Kolowitz, originated on Broadway by Alan Arkin, working as a delivery boy in a sewing machine factory. Denying his parent's wishes for a druggist in the family, he leaves their dreams and his devoted girlfriend Wanda behind and is soon enlisted in (and paying for) a slot as the "leading man" in a third-rate theatrical company while being vamped by the resident less-than-leading lady, the daughter of the hammy "artistic director." His baptism by fire is a hilarious first performance where everything that can go wrong does.
