About the Play:
Throughout his career, Kaufman made a fine art out of the revue sketch, the most popular theatrical form on Broadway in the 1920s and early 1930s. Several of his sketches are absolute classics and they can be singly or as part of a larger evening. Certainly, they are among the most performed one-act comedies in American history. Several will be featured in Encores! Stairway to Paradise revue in the spring of 2007.

The funniest revue sketches ever written; worth producing on their own, or as an evening of several sketches.
