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.
