Review from TheaterLuvrSF

A very fun play. Excellent acting, and a very nice venue. We live in SF, so we mostly attend theater there, but this was worth the drive.

Review from Goldstar Person

No weak performers. 3 of the performances were terrific and the other was good. The best was Tim Reynolds; fantastic work and he really carries the show. Well-directed too especially in the round. Great prop work and beautiful set paintings. ...continued

This is a very fun, well-written, fast-paced show--great actors too! Go see it and support local theater.

Description

Moonlight and Magnolias

A comedy by Ron Hutchinson

Directed by Stewart Lyle

Featuring: John Hale, Keith Jefferds, Tim Reynolds, Donna Turner

It’s 1939 and producer David O. Selznick’s new film _Gone With The Wind _is in trouble. The new director and screenwriter are convinced the movie will flop. Can Selznick bring order to the chaos and rescue the monumental project? Watch art being created one crazy step at a time, as the creative team grapple with artistic compromises, commercialism, the politics of race, and even the closing line of the movie!

_Note: peanuts, peanut shells and peanut dust are present throughout the performance. _
