Absolutely great performances by all. So fast paced it was mesmerizing, and their timing was fantastic. Selznick character was outstanding....heck, they all were. We've been into musicals so much lately we were forgetting good serious but comedic...continued

I thoroughly enjoyed the play! Would definitely reccommend it to others! ALL the actors did a fantastic job! I do not agree with the one reviewer who stated that you need to have seen the movie or read the book. I thought the play was so well...continued

Written by Ron Hutchinson

Directed by Andy Barnicle

Making movie history isn’t easy! Just ask film producer David O. Selznick. Three weeks into production of his historical epic Gone With the Wind, he realizes the script isn’t working. Astoundingly, he halts production, fires the director and hires playwright Ben Hecht to rewrite the script in a record five days. There’s just one problem. Hecht’s never even read the novel. So, Selznick pulls famed director Victor Fleming off The Wizard of Oz and forces the three of them into a room until a new script is finished.

Subsisting on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men spend five days crafting a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful films of all time. This wildly funny and engaging tale illuminates the behind-the-scenes business of movie-making during the golden age of Hollywood.

A co-production with The Laguna Playhouse.
