About this show

Born Yesterday is one of America's original screwball comedies! Harry Brock is a business tycoon who goes to Washington trying to break into the "special interest" business with an ethically challenged senator. He realizes that his fiancée, Billie Dawn, may need a makeover to fit his new inside-the-beltway image. To ensure that Billie gets properly "culturefied," Brock hires a D.C. journalist to give the seemingly dim-witted blonde a crash course in politics, history, literature, and--of course--true love. This play from the Golden Age of comedy proves that times haven't changed.
