November 16

Legendary playwright, theatre director/producer and humorist George S. Kauffman was born on November 16, 1889, in Pittsburgh. In every theater season from 1921 through 1958, a play written or directed by Kaufman appeared on Broadway. With a long list of collaborators including Moss Hart, Edna Ferber and Irving Berlin, he wrote many plays and musicals that have stood the test of time, including The Front Page (1928), Of Thee I Sing (1931), Dinner at Eight (1932), You Can't Take It With You (1936), Stage Door (1937) and The Solid Gold Cadillac (1953), as well as two Broadway shows for the Marx Brothers, The Cocoanuts (1925) and Animal Crackers (1928), which also became movies.
