BORN YESTERDAY GARSON KANIN PDF

Photo by Carol Rosegg. Far from it. Posner makes sure that personal transformations are front and center. Posner also provides for line delivery and movement pacing so that s morality on issues including that a woman must be married and cannot have her own agency remains front-and-center. From the lead to the surrounding ensemble, there is such a shared vitality among them.

I tried the first for a while and then I started to write this play about a junkman in politics. It was going to be a drama, but Judy Holliday came along and it turned into a comedy. The blitzkrieg was literally happening over his head as he scrawled his first draft of Born Yesterday.

I have this image of him hunkered in his room attempting to write his All Quiet on the Western Front, some sort of scathing indictment of capitalism and government corruption. But in the end he came away with this deliciously subversive comedy.

It was The nation on the heels of the war, unable to forget all they had lost and in need of a laugh and some hope.

It may have begun as a much more serious piece, but ultimately Born Yesterday became an answer to that tender and complicated time.

It strikes a delicate balance between idealism and cynicism; between the inevitability of government corruption and the promise of democracy. A woman who boldly remakes herself through learning and who does it for herself and mostly by herself. It promises that knowledge is the real power and learning is the ultimate path to freedom.

That democracy is worth fighting for. And that being able to laugh helps everything. Though he was proud that it had reached so many people.

Indeed, it ran for more than performances on Broadway, and went on to become an Oscar-winning movie. And here we are 70 years later, grappling with the same ideas. Self-determination— both of ourselves and our government—idealism, corruption, power, democracy, freedom.

I think Kanin may have been onto something… —Brenda DeVita.

Die ist nicht von gestern

What a great show! Born Yesterday, set in Washington DC, features Harry Brock, an arrogant, self-important millionaire, his lawyer and fixer, shady business practices, money in politics , and an investigative reporter, Paul Verrall, trying to preserve the ideals of a free democracy. The three main characters are all allegories of the eternal struggle between rich and poor, the selfish and the unselfish, and the role of ignorance in the decay of democracy. And yet…this is a great comedy; an easy way to learn and think about current issues and have some great laughs at the same time! We will stage this story in s style: luxury, art-deco hotel suite, period music, costumes and dialogue. It is a thrill to watch all our characters come to life during rehearsals and we are all looking forward to sharing this great story with you.
