Romantic comedy mixes brightly with political satire in Drama Dock's revival of Garson Kanin's classic Born Yesterday, opening March 7 at the brand-new Vashon High School theatre.
The Broadway hit of 1946, Born Yesterday plays as if it were written this morning. Harry Brock, a greedy war profiteer (Peter Kreitner) comes to Washington DC to buy himself a Senator (Gordon Millar), aided by an Attorney General-turned-political fixer (Rich Wiley). The fix seems in, until Harry decides his companion, a (supposedly) dumb-blonde ex-chorine named Billie (Stephanie Murray), lacks polish for Washington's elite, and he hires investigative reporter Paul Verrall (Marshall Murray) to give her some.
Will true love beat political chicanery? Can a flighty bimbo become an empowered woman? Do the good guys ever win in Washington DC? Check it out with Born Yesterday.
Performances: March 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 730 pm; March 9 and 16 at 3:00 pm.
Tickets: general admission $15, members/seniors/students $12.
