Meet the Cavendishes, the highly dysfunctional first family of the American stage (and a thinly disguised version of real-life stage family the Barrymores). Three generations, from dowager widow Fanny down to promising ingenue Gwen, sword-fight, swoon and act their way through life. But when Hollywood star Tony flees to Europe and Gwen shocks the family by marrying a "non-professional," it seems the Cavendish name and reputation is threatened. Through it all, Fanny rules with a combination of strength, wit, courage and a sharp tongue, proving the old axiom that the show -- and the family -- must go on. George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber's 1927 classic comedy is fast-paced, uproarious and full of larger-than-life eccentrics. Kaufman and Ferber also wrote Stage Door
and Dinner at Eight
