Musical theatre's Emily Skinner congratulates director-performer David Pittu on the Oct. 2 opening of The Butter and Egg Man at the Atlantic Theatre.

The Butter and Egg Man, the only play Kaufman didn't write in collaboration with another writer, concerns a naive Midwesterner whom two producers attempt to sucker into producing a cheesy religious melodrama.
