“In my house growing up, there was a certain value placed on both storytelling and laughter,” said Sandy Rustin. So it came as no surprise when Rustin chose to be an actor and a playwright, specifically of comedy. After earning her spot as the scribe of the third-most produced play in the country for the 2022-2023 season with “Clue” (and most-produced play in high schools), Rustin made her Broadway debut in July with her Noël Coward-inspired farce “The Cottage.”

In many ways, “The Cottage” is a culmination of Rustin’s lifetime as a comedy sponge, having absorbed lessons in the art form by watching the grand masters.
