RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

Expanded by the author from his earlier vaudeville sketch Poor Aubrey, The Show Off of the title is Aubrey Piper an egotistical braggart and his farcical attempts to retain some diginity amidst the barrage of his own self-aggrandizing hyperbole. A richly comic portrait of a common fraility in the American character, this long-running success is from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Craig's Wife and The Torch Bearers.
"The Show-Off is one of the 20th century's greatest comedies and a dissection of the hilarity and pathos of family life with which any audience can identify. The play is a feast for actors.” - Nicholas Martin, Director
The Show-Off was first presented on Broadway by Stewart & French, Inc. at the Playhouse Theatre in New York City on Februrary 5, 1924.
