Overview

Satirical comedy / 24 m., 14 f. (doubling possible.) / 5 ints. or unit set.

Recently revived on Broadway to great acclaim, this is the rollicking tale of three down and out troupers who decide to head for Hollywood and try their luck with the newly invented talkies. Due to a series of consistent blunders, the most stupid of the three is carried to pinnacles of fame and fortune until he's literally made a god of the industry. It's a fast paced and wild romp and a marvelous spoof of tinsel land. The Pullman car and waiting room episodes are classics in hilarity.

"Ideal summer theatre... [with] comic climaxes that distinguish the humor of the 30s.... Grand chains of lunacy." N.Y. Times.

"Lovely play.... Gracefully insane." N.Y. Post.
