Primary Stages is thrilled to present the 20th anniversary revival of David Ives's hilarious All in the Timing .
When this evening of six one-act comedies premiered in 1993, Vincent Canby of The New York Times said "Ives is wizardly...magical and funny...a master of language." Canby also told audiences "Drop-everything-and-go!"--and audiences did, for more than 600 performances.
This new production, directed by John Rando, includes plays like "Sure Thing" and "The Universal Language" which have become contemporary classics, and marks the show's first major revival in New York City since its original premiere.
