"If you love those great old screwball comedies from
Hollywood’s Golden Era of the 1930s, you will love
Building Madness, the new play from award-winning
author, Kate Danley, at the Grove Theater Center in
Burbank.

Featuring a picture perfect cast performing in the
sophisticated style and rapid-fire word play of those
classic films and seeing it all done live is a treat. The
plot is straight-forward fun, and what author Danley
does with it is rich."
