Mark Your Calendar for Born Yesterday
Pittsburgh Public Theater's MADE IN AMERICA season launches with Garson Kanin's classic 1946 comedy set in Washington, DC.
Pittsburgh Public Theater's 38th season begins with Born Yesterday, Garson Kanin's classic comedy about political corruption and personal awakening. Directed by Producing Artistic Director Ted Pappas, Born Yesterday runs September 27 - October 28, 2012 at the O'Reilly Theater.
Born Yesterday is presented by First Niagara Bank Foundation.
The play is set in 1946 in a swanky Washington, DC hotel where tycoon Harry Brock (Ted Kōch) has come to pursue his shady business dealings. His corrupt cronies include cousin Eddie (John Shepard), lawyer Ed Devery (Michael McKenzie), and Senator Norval Hedges (Larry John Meyers). The most glittering member of Harry's entourage is girlfriend Billie Dawn (Melissa Miller), who knows her way around a chorus line but is clueless about the ways of Washington. After meeting the Senator's wife (Jill Keating), it's clear that Billie needs to be educated. To do the job, Harry hires journalist Paul Verrall (Daniel Krell), who teaches her more than Harry ever bargained for.
Also appearing in Born Yesterday are Ken Bolding, Nic Duggan, James FitzGerald, Brandon Lambert, Amy Landis, and Karen Merritt. The design team is James Noone (Scenic), David Zyla (Costumes), Kirk Bookman (Lighting), and Zach Moore (Sound). Casting by McCorkle Casting; the Production Stage Manager is Frederic H. Orner; the Assistant Stage Manager is Kelly Haywood.
