Run of Show

This Broadway hit is about a married man in his fifties who suddenly learns he’s becoming a father again. His last child, a girl, was born 24 years ago and, considering the boob she married, he finds the prospect of another unthinkable. His daughter and son in law live with him; she gets up for breakfast at lunchtime and he is curiously addicted to solitaire. It’s not only the impending birth that startles him; his previously meek little wife begins to lay down the law. There’s to be a nursery, a new bath, and she’s to have her own checking account. Such dour capitulation you’ll never see again. “Good old fashioned domestic farce…. plain and simple laughter.” N.Y. Daily News. “It fractured the first nighters… They’ll love it in community playhouses, college productions and high school senior plays.” N.Y. World Telegram and Sun.
