James Lapine's adaptation of the lifestory of Broadway playwright, Moss Hart
Lincoln Center Theater presents Act One, a new play and adaptation by James Lapine of the autobiographical book by playwright Moss Hart. Hart penned several Broadway classics, including Merrily We Roll Along in 1934 and You Can't Take It With You in 1936, for which he won a Pulitzer Prize. The show's ingenious stage design, featuring huge revolving turntables which transitions the action through locations and time periods, won Beowulf Borritt the 2014 Tony Award for Best Scenic Design of a Play.
Hart was born into a poor family in the Bronx and was introduced to the world of theatre by his aunt. Act One follows his life, from his humble origins to the collaboration with Broadway veteran George S. Kaufman on the musical that helped make him famous.
