A new production of the rarely-produced Broadway smash about sex, stardom, and the silver screen. In Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? a novice reporter gets more than he bargained for when he interviews silver screen sex goddess Rita Marlowe in this devilishly funny satire by George Axelrod (author of the play The Seven Year Itch and the screenplays Bus Stop, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and The Manchurian Candidate.)
Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? was originally produced on Broadway in 1955, where it ran for 444 performances. The original Broadway cast included Orson Bean, Jayne Mansfield, and Walter Matthau.
Written by George Axelrod
