Watch & Listen: TKD Presents "45 Seconds From Broadway" by Neil Simon

When: Friday, June 28th & Saturday, June 29th at 8pm and Sunday, June 30th at 3pm
Where: Theatre Knoxville Downtown / 800 S. Central St., Knoxville 

From America’s master of Contemporary Broadway Comedy, here is another revealing comedy behind the scenes in the entertainment world, this time near the heart of the theatre district. 45 Seconds from Broadway takes place in the legendary “Polish Tea Room” on New York’s 47th Street. Here Broadway theatre personalities washed-up and on-the-rise, gather to schmooz even as they lose. This touching valentine to New York offers great acting roles as Neil Simon continues his exploration of the foibles and funny in the human comedy.

“The play may have the rat-a-tat pace of a Marx Brothers movie, but it exists not to create Groucho-like anarchy but to weave fractured lives into healing harmony.”
– The New York Times

“A warm-spirited tribute … a theatrical valentine.”
– Variety
