Colonial Playhouse presents ‘Born Yesterday’

Colonial Playhouse opens 2018 with the classic comedy, “Born Yesterday” by Garson Kanin, directed by R Bruce Warren and LeAnne Mangano. The show was first produced at Colonial in 1950, after one of the longest runs in theatrical history.

When Billie’s ignorance becomes a liability, he hires journalist Paul Verrall to educate her. In the process of learning, Billie Dawn realizes how corrupt Harry is and begins interfering with his plans.
