Playwright’s daughter part of Q&A


By On Deck Staff

Anne Kaufman, daughter of the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, George S. Kaufman, will be appearing at a Q&A session with the cast of East Lynne Theater Company’s “The Butter and Egg Man,” Oct. 2.
George S. Kaufman (1889-1961) became America’s most successful playwright in the 1920s and 1930s.
He collaborated with Marc Connolly, Dorothy Parker, Edna Ferber, Ring Lardner, Morrie Ryskind, Moss Hart, and Howard Teichmann. Kaufman’s two Pulitzer Prizes were for “Of Thee I Sing,” with Morrie Ryskind and Ira Gershwin, the first musical to be so honored, and with Moss Hart for “You Can’t Take It With You.”
“The Butter and Egg Man,” is the only play he wrote by himself, and ELTC recently celebrated its Broadway premiere on Sept. 23, by opening on the same day, 84 years later.
Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions of the cast members and the director, too, after the show on Oct. 2.
“The Butter and Egg Man” runs through Oct. 24, every Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m., at The First Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes St., Cape May.
