ONCE IN A LIFETIME
By George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart
Three down-and-out vaudeville performers abandon their struggling act in New York and head to Hollywood, hoping to make it big. Their ticket to fortune: teaching silent movie stars with terrible voices how to speak and articulate with the onset of the talkies. It’s a brilliant scheme, so what could possibly go wrong? Only everything! Considered one of the best collaborations by Broadway luminaries Kaufman and Hart, this hilarious screwball spoof melds the worlds of theatre and film in brilliant style and became the basis of the film Singin’ in the Rain. This delightful and dazzling production will be directed by Mark Rucker, Associate Artistic Director of San Francisco’s acclaimed American Conservatory Theater.
