About Born Yesterday

In this sharp-edged satire, opportunistic tycoon Harry Brock arrives in Washington with his naive girlfriend Billie Dawn to game the political system. With the help of an idealistic reporter, Billie wisens up and fights back to end the corruption. Aaron Posner (Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?") directs Edward Gero ("Hello, Dolly!;" "A Christmas Carol") and Kimberly Gilbert ("Jefferson’s Garden," "The Laramie Project") in this 1940s screwball comedy that shows truth and justice can still win the day.
