Synopsis: "Based on Carl Reiner’s autobiographical novel and Joseph Stein’s stage adaptation, this hilariously tuneful musical careens through the misadventures of star-struck, stage-struck, woman-struck teenager David Kolowitz, who pratfalls his way into manhood via the theatre. Enter Laughing: The Musical is the perfect show for anyone who has ever had a dream of stardom, an overbearing mother, a song in their heart, or a laugh in their soul."
The musical adaptation of Enter Laughing features a book by Joseph Stein, with music & lyrics by Stan Daniels.
The creative team has also been announced and features music direction by Phil Reno, choreography by Jennifer Paulson-Lee, scenic design by James Morgan, costume design by Tyler M. Holland, lighting design by Ken Billington & Jason Kantrowitz, sound design by Julian Evans, and props by Brooke van Hensbergen.
York Theatre Company first presented the musical in the fall of 2008 and now produces its off-Broadway return in association with Riki Kane Larimer and Alene Daniels.
