10th Anniversary Memories


UP NEXT
:


The Butter and Egg Man by George s. Kaufman

Directed by Ricardo Rust


Spring/Summer, 2015

at a venue to be announced


Perhaps one of his lesser known works to us now, The Butter and Egg Man is a wonderful comedy about producing theater which was one of Kaufman's biggest Broadway successes.  What better way to celebrate 10 years of producing theater?

The Butter and Egg Man follows our hero, Peter Jones, a likable Mid-Western boy, as he navigates the sometimes exasperating and always exciting world of Broadway.  Written in 1925, it is a hilarious satire about a seemingly simple country boy who comes to New York to break in to theatrical producing under the misguided idea that he will double his money.  But the young man may be smarter than he seems – will he be able to turn a “flop” in to a “wow”?
