The Arkansas Repertory Theatre presents Neil Simon’s comedy about comedy, Laughter on the 23rd Floor, to star Emmy-nominated actor Judge Reinhold, February 1 – 19. The production stars Judge Reinhold, best know for comedic roles in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Beverly Hills Cop, The Santa Clause and Seinfeld. This is Reinhold’s debut on the Arkansas Rep stage. Pauline Kael, for The New Yorker, wrote, “Judge Reinhold is a very affable actor, a charming combination of Daffy Duck and Jimmy Stewart.”

Enjoy Judge Reinhold in his Rep debut. Laughter on the 23rd Floor will be a theatrical experience you’ll never forget. The production is sponsored by Chip & Cindy Murphy.
