Flappers. Prohibition. Hot Jazz. It’s the height of the Roaring Twenties, and there’s a new kid in town. The town is sophisticated New York City, and the kid is some homespun hick wannabe determined to make a name for himself as a journalist by impressing the funniest and most famous writers on Broadway. But it’s going take more than a sharp tongue to triumph in a literal — and literate — battle of wits with notorious wise-crackers like Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley and George S. Kaufman.

The Roaring Twenties come roaring back to life when Hollywood’s The 3 Clubs is transformed into New York’s legendary Algonquin Hotel during the Age of Wonderful Nonsense, that era’s SNL/TMZ, when the brightest lights on Broadway gathered almost daily to one-up one another with their caustic quips and clever conversation, in this smarty-pants new comedy from award-winners writer Steven Vlasak and director Dig Wayne.

“Everything I like is either illegal, immoral, or onstage in this play.” – Alexander Woollcott

“This is the best show I’ve ever seen that I myself didn’t write.” – George S. Kaufman

“You CAN lead a horticulture. Invite her to see, “Nights at the Algonquin Round Table.” – Dorothy Parker

“This play is fantastic, and so is this play.” – Robert Benchley

“You’ll be flapper-gasted.” – F. Scott Gertzweig

“What fresh hell is this?” – Dorothy Parker
