Can’t catch the play version of Moss Hart’s memoir Act One at LCT? Head west to Cali's Festival of New American Musicals to see Tony nominee Vicki Lewis in the reading of Going Hollywood. The show is a musical adaptation of George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s 1930 Broadway comedy Once in a Lifetime, which also serves as the inspiration for Hart’s book Act One.
The spoof on Hollywood is by Joe Leonardo, Tony winner David Zippel and Jonathan Sheffer, and will be directed by Leonardo. Along with Lewis, the performances will star stage favorites Adam Wylie, Anneliese Van Der Pol and Tim Martin Gleason. They are set to take place on January 22 and 23 at the Barnsdall Gallery Theater in Hollywood.
In a statement, the festival co-executive producer Marcia Seligson said, "We've been eager to present Going Hollywood for some time. This is the West Coast premier of one of the marvelous hidden treasures of musical theater."
We're hoping it won't remain hidden for long!
