Premiering onstage in 1946, Garson Kanin’s comedy Born Yesterday was among the era’s longest-running plays, staying firmly planted on Broadway for nearly four years. The narrative follows a sugar daddy millionaire who hires a journalist to teach his mistress proper etiquette when her lack of social graces starts to affect his business. Two films were also made: an Oscar winner in 1950 and a Razzie nominee in 1993. Matthew Byron Cassi directs The Classic Theatre’s production through May 22, with a community talkback following the May 15 performance. $10-$25, 8pm Fri-Sat, 3pm Sun, The Classic Theatre of San Antonio, 1924 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 589-8450, classictheatre.org. — KM
