Strawdog Theatre Company and Artistic Director Hank Boland present the final main stage production in its 2015 - 2016 season and the final production to be produced at Strawdog's Broadway home for 26 years*, George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart's ONCE IN A LIFETIME, running now through June 4, directed by Damon Kiely. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

May (Kathleen McDonnell), Jerry (Mike Dailey) and George (Scott Danielson) are giving up vaudeville and leaving New York to cash in on California's latest gold rush: talking pictures. Kaufman and Hart's 1930 comedy classic about Hollywood and the quest for fame is a love letter to the theatre with thirteen actors playing over forty characters. Damon Kiely, the acclaimed director of American Blues Theatre's Hank Williams: Lost Highway and author of How to Read a Play: Script Analysis for Directors directs this epic satire of greed run amok.
