Enter Laughing by Joseph Stein - Salem Night

Adapted from Carl Reiner's Novel

The semi-autobiographical, riotous account of stage-struck young David Kolowitz, originated on Broadway by Alan Arkin, working as a delivery boy in a sewing machine factory. Denying his parents' wishes for a druggist in the family, he leaves their dreams and his devoted girlfriend Wanda behind and is soon enlisted (and paying for) a slot as the "leading man" in a third-rate theatrical company while being vamped by the resident less-than leading lady, the daughter of the hammy "artistic director." His baptism of fire is a hilarious first performance where everything that can go wrong, does. Directed by David Allen George.

This performance is a "Salem NIght" with free admission for Salem residents with ID. 

The evening also includes a pre-show conversation at 6:30 pm, "Why Laughing Matters."
