Why See Born Yesterday?
A revived classic
A New York entrepreneur heads to D.C for a spot of bribery in support of his business interests alongside his trophy mistress and former showgirl Billie Dawn. When he decides it is Billie's, not his, ignorance that begins to show him up, he sets her up with a tutor, a local journalist, the dubious Paul Verrall to be educated in all things political. But when Billie starts to open her mind, she realizes that she might not just be the only one in need of educating.
Ruthlessly funny and smart, Garson Kanin's Capitol Hill caper is an extremely prescient examination of ego and greed meets romantic comedy, that you won't believe was written over 70 years ago!

The show is every bit as grand, electric, quiet, and transportive as its Broadway counterpart; in certain actors' cases, perhaps even more so!
