A Thousand Clowns
A Comedy by Herb Gardner
Directed by T.J. Rogers
Mar 21 – Apr 6

This benchmark of Broadway comedy produced one of theatre’s most beloved roles: a bachelor uncle who is endeavoring to rear his precocious nephew. The uncle has tired of writing cheap comedy for a children’s television program and finds himself unemployed with free time to saunter through new York and do everything he’s ever wanted to do. When social services comes to insure that the nephew is receiving proper upbringing, the writer finds he must go back to work to support him properly, or lose the boy. The comedy is filled with sweetness and warmth and the inspired daffiness of a true non-conformist adult. An extraordinarily funny play with brilliantly offbeat lines.
