Enter Laughing to have a return engagement at Saint Peter's Theatre
The York Theatre Company has announced that its acclaimed production of Enter Laughing: The Musical will return for a limited seven-week engagement.
Performances will begin 21 Jan and continue until 8 Mar 2009 at the companyï¿½s home at The Theatre at Saint Peter's.
The Theatre at Saint Peter's is currently home to the new musical My Vaudeville Man! which is playing through to 4 Jan 2009.
Enter Laughing, score by Stan Daniels and libretto by Joseph Stein, based on the play (and the movie by Stein and Reiner), is directed by Stuart Ross.
Set in 1930ï¿½s New York City, where nothing will keep aspriring actor David Kolowitz from his dreams of Broadway stardomï¿½not his overly protective parents, not his demanding girlfriends and certainly not his severe lack of talent!
Casting for the return engagement is still to be announced.
Enter Laughing played on Broadway in 1976 as 'So Long 174th Street,' starring Robert Morse.
Joseph Stein won the Tony Award and the Drama Critics Circle Award for best musical for 'Fiddler on the Roof.' His other musicals include 'Zorba' (Tony nomination, Drama Critics Circle Award), 'The Bakers Wife' (Olivier Award), 'Rags' (Tony nomination), 'Irene,' 'Juno,' 'Take Me Along,' 'The King of Hearts,' and 'So Long, 174th Street.'
Stan Daniels won eight Emmys during his long television career, including three as co-creator and executive producer of 'Taxi' and three as a writer on 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show.' He also wrote for 'The Dean Martin Show,' 'The Bill Cosby Show' and 'Phyllis.'
