    1. BORN YESTERDAY. (1946). Garson Kanin (& Ruth Gordon?). ****. Kanin wrote a slew of plays, but was known primarily for his work in film. There is a famous quote from him that I love: “I would rather be Frank Capra than God – if there is a Capra.” He won at least two Academy Awards for Best Screenplay during his career, I think in collaboration with his wife, Ruth Gordon (Remember Harold and Maude? – She played Maude.) This play opened in ’46 starring Judy Holiday as Billie Dawn, a n [...]

    2. A comedy in the classical sense. There are no ROTF laughs in this play, but it is still nice and pleasant and enjoyable.I will observe that this play relies heavily on its stage directions. Every little action is detailed minutely in this play which doesn't necessarily make for an interesting or exciting read and it doesn't give much leeway for creative interpretation.If producing this play, the set would be my biggest concern.

    3. I picked this up at a book sale last month. I had seen and loved the 1950 film adaption of this play by the same name and was excited to read the play's original script.

Nonetheless, I greatly enjo [...]

    4. Saw the play on Broadway in June 2011 and read the script soon after. Originally a play in 1946 and a movie in 1950, the politics play today as well as when it was originally written. And the story is just plain fun!

    5. The writing style was not to my liking and neither was any of the dialogue. I could tell the author was trying to have one difinitive story line but it did not translate well and the play left me confused and sad that I spent a whole day forcing myself to read it.
