OVERVIEW

Emmy® nominee JIM BELUSHI (According to Jim), Tony® winner ROBERT SEAN LEONARD (The Invention of Love, Dr. Wilson on House) and Tony-nominee NINA ARIANDA (“The most exciting find of the season!” New York Magazine) star in BORN YESTERDAY, Garson Kanin’s award-winning romantic comedy about sex and politics.

Directed by Tony® winner Doug Hughes (Doubt), it’s the timeless and timely story of a not-so-dumb-blonde, her less-than-honest brute of a boyfriend, and the no-nonsense reporter who helps her uncover some of the dirtiest little secrets in Washington.

AWARDS & REVIEWS

“THIS WINNING REVIVAL IS A GEM! The dazzling Nina Arianda lands all her quips, with inspired touches of physical humor for good measure. But her uncommon warmth and charm also make Billie Dawn touchingly vibrant, as she tracks Billie’s evolution from vulnerable bimbo to assured woman. IT’S A DOWNRIGHT TOUR DE FORCE. She also has a surprisingly good foil in Jim Belushi, who doesn’t soft-pedal Harry’s brutal bullying while suggesting it’s prompted by insecurity. Watching these two lock horns is so pleasurable, you want to see them again as soon as the curtain comes down.” – New York Post

“A NIGHT OF INSPIRATIONAL ENTERTAINMENT! The luminous laugh-goddess Nina Arianda is, without a doubt, the most exciting find of the Broadway Season.” – New York Magazine

“WHAT A PLEASURE TO HAVE ROBERT SEAN LEONARD BACK ON STAGE IN NEW YORK. ” – The New York Times

“NINA ARIANDA IS GIVING A PERFORMANCE THAT COULD BE CALLED BREAKOUT,although breakout somehow seems insufficient.She shines brightly on John Lee Beatty’s radiant art deco set, delivering proclamations with a zing and a perfect gangster’s-moll accent that would make Garson Kanin proud.” – Entertainment Weekly
