Artist James McMullan has designed dozens of posters for Lincoln Center Theater, ranging from musicals like Carousel and The Light in the Piazza to dramas like A Delicate Balance and Other Desert Cities. We, however, feel like McMullan outdid even his best work for the upcoming Broadway production of Act One, James Lapine's stage adaptation of playwright Moss Hart's legendary memoir. McMullan manages to capture the spirit of the shows in all of his pieces, but this one, with Hart staring off at the bright lights of Broadway marquees (including the Music Box, where his first play, Once in a Lifetime, opened), takes the cake.

Act One begins previews March 20 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, with an opening night set for April 17. Directed by Lapine, the production stars Tony nominees Tony Shalhoub and Santino Fontana as playwright Hart at various ages.
