Laughter on the 23rd Floor

The Tybee Arts Association presents “Laughter on the 23rd Floor,” by Neil Simon.  Neil Simon takes us behind the scenes to the writers room for a fictional look at the chaos and comedy of the Max Prince show  a 1950′s  T.V. hit.  This is a hilarious salute to the comedy writers of televisions golden age.  Mr. Simon wrote for many years as one of the great writers for the Sid Caesar’s fabled “Show of Shows”  along with Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner and Woody Allen.  “Laughter” is about the camaraderie of the best writers in the country.   They grind out funny material for the weekly TV show.   The play is also about friendship, the break through of female writers, and a country in changing times. Everyone’s on eggshells with McCarthy’s blacklist and the networks finding the right shows and time slots for 1950′s television.
