* World Premiere

Born Yesterday (2005)
Meet Billie Dawn - a beautiful but ditzy ex-chorus girl and mistress to millionaire tough-guy Hairy Brock, she's about to have her eyes opened to the world around her and to her own worth by good-guy journalist Paul Verral. One of the greatest and most enduring comedies of the 20th century, BORN YESTERDAY is a heartwarming, positive, and scathingly truthful tale about the relationship of our government to commerce. Kanin’s American classic still serves as an appropriate call to arms for all citizens in order for our democracy to function properly.

"A savagely funny look at influence-peddling in Washington and the innate sexism of American life, BORN YESTERDAY also reminds us that there is no insignificant person, no negligent human being."
