About Act One:

Growing up in an impoverished immigrant family in the Bronx, Moss Hart dreamed of being part of the glamorous, magical world of show business- someday, somehow. From dropping out of school to becoming the toast of the town, his autobiography Act One recounts the making of a Broadway legend.

Now Lincoln Center Theater presents Act One, wonderfully adapted for the stage by Tony Award-winning writer and director James Lapine (Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods). A cast of 22 plays over 40 parts in this funny, heartbreaking and suspenseful portrait of the artist as a young man.

The weekly radio program "Broadway to Mainstreet," hosted by Laurence Maslon on NPR-affiliate station WPPB-FM, recently did an entire show dedicated to Moss Hart.
