Born Yesterday is still timeless…
Posted on Apr 11, 2011
A comedy about politics and the power of female persuasion, Born Yesterday tells the timeless and timely story of a not-so-honest businessman and a not-so-dumb blonde out to “capitalize” on everything Washington has to offer. Jim Belushi, Nina Arianda and Robert Sean Leonard are terrific in this revival which originally opened on February 4, 1946, with a cast that included Judy Holliday, Paul Douglas as Harry Brock and Gary Merrill as Paul Verrall, who becomes Billie’s confidante. The play ran for 1,642 performances and was adapted into a 1950 film that won Holliday a Best Actress Oscar opposite Broderick Crawford as Harry and William Holden as Paul. The set design is gorgeous and the costumes are elegant. . For additional show options https://www.dnykg.com/theatre-reviews/. Let us know which shows you like!
