Westridge Theatre Presents Once in a Lifetime by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman

Westridge Theatre presents “Once in a Lifetime” by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman with performances on October 19, 20, and 21 at the Fran Norris Scoble Performing Arts Center (324 Madeline Dr., Pasadena).

A washed-up Vaudeville trio May Daniels, Jerry Hyland, and George Lewis decide to sell their Vaudeville act and head for Hollywood, presenting themselves as elocution experts in the hope that someone will hire them to train actors unaccustomed to speaking on screen. Success in the movie business is a fickle friend indeed, and George, May, and Jerry must learn to navigate the ego-driven confusion and ambitious, chaotic temptation of Hollywood, or risk losing each other forever.

This madcap satiric tale pokes gentle fun at the shining, glamorous, ridiculous, and tacky scene that was Hollywood in the late 1920s, when the upheaval caused by talking pictures created a whole world of panic and possibility. The show is lively and upbeat, laced with wry humor and quirky characters.

This play marks the first collaboration between Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, the writing team behind such classics as Merrily We Roll Along, The Man Who Came to Dinner, and You Cant Take It with You.

Online ticket Sales will close 3 hours before the performance time, please check at the Box Office for ticket availability. Box Office opens one hour prior to the performance time.
