Enter Laughing Meets the Press

The Cast


The press met with the cast of Enter Laughing (on its 50th Anniversary) at a recent sneak peek at the York Theatre and Theater Pizzazz was on the scene!


Based on Carl Reiner’s semi-autobiographical novel and Joseph Stein’s stage adaptation, this hilariously tuneful musical careens through the misadventures of star-struck, stage-struck, woman-struck teenager David Kolowitz, who pratfalls his way into manhood via the theatre in 1930s New York City. Enter Laughing: The Musical is the perfect show for anyone who has ever had a dream of stardom, an overbearing mother, a song in their heart, or just needs a heartfelt, side-splitting laughfest.
