In Moss Hart and George S Kaufman's Once in a Lifetime, three New York actors abandon their clapped-out vaudeville act to make it big in Hollywood. Jerry and May have a brilliant idea: a voice school for the brainless stars of the silent movies. Their sweet pal, George, tags along for the ride. He's dumb enough to impress the mighty Glogauer, head of Glogauer Studios, and when Jerry and May are drummed out of town, George comes up smelling of roses.
From the great masters of American comedy comes a play about the movies. A vast cast and all the visual extravagance of Hollywood's golden age: an irresistible comic treat.
