  • Theater Review: An American Comedy In Westport

    WESTPORT — Playwright  George Kelly came from a notable Philadelphia family whose ranks included a champion Olympic oarsman and a movie star who married a prince (you probably know who…), but his own star led him to the stage, first as a vaudevillian performer and then as a playwright. He was very successful in the 1920s, winning the Pulitzer Prize for his drama Craig’s Wife, and achieving great popular success with his comedy, The Show-Off.
