***** Highly Recommended ***** When I read that some theater or other is doing a revival of such-and-so play, I often find myself asking, “What were they thinking?” I might have thought that when I read that Remy Bumppo was staging Garson Kanin’s 1946 play “Born Yesterday” but I was wrong! During intermission, my friend Nancy wondered if this was about Washington today. She was shocked when I told her when “Born Yesterday” was written. You’ll really want to see this brilliant revival! 4 BIG Spotlights
