During its two-year run on Broadway, the comedy packed houses during 678 performances, and took away a Tony Award for Best Show. Simon’s box office appeal has made his plays among the most regularly performed in the world.

Audiences will remember past Licklog productions of the award-winning playwright, including “Barefoot in the Park,” “Plaza Suite,” “Rumors,” “Last of the Red Hot Lovers,” and “The Odd Couple.”
