A Thurber Carnival
By James Thurber
Directed by Michael O'Rourke
James Thurber, the author of "A Thurber Carnival," is considered one of the foremost American humorists of the 20th century. He was best known for his cartoons and short stories celebrating the comic frustrations and eccentricities of ordinary people, which were published in The New Yorker magazine for about 30 years. He co-wrote the 1940 Broadway hit The Male Animal with Elliot Nugent, which went on to become a film starring Henry Fonda and Olivia de Havilland. Thurber wrote nearly 40 books, and won a Tony Award for his Broadway play, A Thurber Carnival, in which he often starred as himself.
