Born Yesterday Summary

Emmy Award nominee Jim Belushi (The Defenders, According to Jim), Tony Award winner Robert Sean Leonard (The Invention of Love, Dr. Wilson on House) and Nina Arianda (“A breakout performance – one of the highlights of the year”- Charles Isherwood for Venus in Fur) star in Born Yesterday, Garson Kanin’s award-winning comedy about sex and politics. Directed by Tony Award-winner Doug Hughes (Doubt), it's the timeless and timely story of a not-so-dumb-blonde who, with the help of a no-nonsense reporter, uncovers her brutish boyfriend’s dirty little secrets and soon discovers that ignorance is not always bliss.
