Welcome to the wild world of showbiz, where dreams are big, egos are bigger and fortunes can be made or lost in the blink of an eye. Step into the spotlight with The Butter and Egg Man, George S. Kaufman's uproarious comedy that takes a sidesplitting look behind the scenes of the theater world.

Picture this: a wide-eyed novice from the heartland, armed with nothing but a hefty inheritance and a dream of making it big on Broadway. Meet our unsuspecting hero, the Butter and Egg Man himself, as he stumbles into the glittering world of show business, wide-eyed and ready to make his mark.

But navigating the cutthroat world of theater isn't easy, especially when you're as green as grass and twice as naïve. From shady producers with dollar signs in their eyes to temperamental divas with egos the size of Manhattan, our intrepid protagonist encounters a cast of characters as colorful as a Broadway marquee.

With Kaufman's signature wit and razor-sharp humor, The Butter and Egg Man skewers the absurdities of the entertainment industry with gusto. Every scene crackles with energy as our hero bumbles his way through auditions, rehearsals and opening nights, all while learning the true meaning of success and friendship in the most unexpected places.

But don't let the laughter fool you—beneath the belly laughs lies a poignant commentary on the fleeting nature of fame and the importance of staying true to oneself in a world where everyone's out for a piece of the spotlight.

So dim the lights, cue the curtain and get ready for a rollicking ride through the glitz and glamour of Broadway. The Butter and Egg Man is a comedic tour de force that proves that sometimes, the biggest stars are the ones who shine the brightest offstage.

Presented by Out of the Box Theatre.
