This benchmark of Broadway comedy produced one of the theatre’s most beloved roles: unconventional Murray, uncle to precocious nephew, Nick. Tired of writing cheap comedy gags for “Chipper the Chipmunk”, a children’s television star, Murray finds himself unemployed with plenty of free time with which to pursue his…pursuits. Lectured by his conventional brother Arnold and hounded by “the system”, Murray is paid a visit by bickering, uptight social workers, Sandra and Albert, and finds himself solving their problems as well as most of his own. Filled with laughter, warmth and inspired daffiness. A quintessential New York comedy.
