Mr. Shaw Goes to Hollywood: Quick-Witted Comedy of Confrontation
$15.00 - $35.00
COMP - $17.50*
George Bernard Shaw was the Irish playwright of works like Pygmalion, Man and Superman and Saint Joan. Many of his works written for the stage were successfully adapted to the screen -- Pygmalion, for instance, became the musical My Fair Lady. Inspired by a luncheon at MGM Studios in the 1930s, MadKap Productions' presentation of Mr. Shaw Goes to Hollywood centers on the exchange between Shaw and his wife Charlotte at a meeting with Clark Gable, John Barrymore, Marion Davies, William Randolph Hearst and Louis B. Mayer, who are hoping to produce a moving picture based on Shaw's most famous play. Inspired by a true story, and written with the quick wit of a screwball comedy from the '30s, this play mines big laughs from the confrontation between larger-than-life Hollywood legends and one of the sharpest-tongued playwrights in history.
