RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

A father, whose wife of thirty years has left him, comes to New York to seek solace from his son and discovers his son is gay. Norman, Is that You? is considered to be the very first play to have dealt openly and comedically with homosexuality. Although it has been performed in over thirty-five countries, and is still going strong, the authors have now revised the script to give it a more contemporary feel. The new version, while just as funny as the the original, is now more in keeping with the times and is sure to be just as beloved by audiences - if not more.

"A real treat." - Sun Newspapers

"A funny play... about values, love and human behavior." - KC Alive

"Uproarious!" - NBC TV

Norman, Is that You? premiered at the Lyceum Theatre in New York City, February 19, 1970, directed by George Abbott.
