“I want everyone to be smart. As smart as they can be. A world of ignorant people is too dangerous to live in.”

If the Constitution was a blueprint of the democratic ideals of the newly minted United States of America, then Born Yesterday is a plea to each citizen to remember, nurture and fight for those ideals and principles. It is also a cautionary tale in which Garson Kanin reminds us of the perils of remaining naïve and uninformed, of standing on the sidelines. - David Darlow
