Inspired by the playwright’s youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows with all the attendant comic drama, Neil Simon’s Laughter on the 23rd Floor focuses on the harried writing staff as they frantically scramble to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman “Max Prince”.
