  • Hubbard Theatre

The play is a great American comedy about politics and the power of female persuasion. Set in one of the finest hotels in Washington D.C., Born Yesterday tells the story of Harry Brock, a hot-tempered and corrupt tycoon, and Billie Dawn, his ex-showgirl mistress as they navigate the Washington political scene. Billie, possessing a brash and over-the-top personality, gets an extreme makeover from a political reporter hired by her bullying boyfriend. She receives more than a history lesson when she learns what Harry really is and what he wants. Born Yesterday is a delicious screwball classic.
