Act One


Few have captured the magic of the theatre better than Moss Hart. A poor kid from the Bronx who went on to become the writer of classic comedies with George S. Kaufman, including You Can’t Take it With You and The Man Who Came To Dinner. He also directed the original production of My Fair Lady.


Moss’s memoir Act One has captivated theater lovers for over 50 years. Director James Lapine has fittingly re-imagined this memoir for the stage, creating a world as vivid and transformative as the stage itself. The show features a first-rate cast led by Tony Shalhoub, Andrea Martin and Santino Fontana.
