Our final production of the 2017/18 Season will be the Hollywood spoof, ‘Once In A Lifetime’, by Moss Hart and George S Kaufman.
It is 1928, and the plot hinges on the fate of three down-on-their-luck New York vaudevillians who come up with the idea of moving to Hollywood to open up a ‘School of Elocution and Voice Culture’ – a subject about which they know zilch!
And this is soon apparent as, so desperate is this sudden transition affecting the silent movie business, our three opportunists are quickly engaged by Herman Glogauer, megalomaniacal head of Glogauer Studios, to do something about the voices of his two biggest stars, ‘Phyllis Fontaine’ and ‘Florabelle Leigh’, ‘The Most Beautiful Legs In America!’ – “cept y’can’t hear em!”
As to the results, well, I wouldn’t want to spoil the insane plot ….. but like all ‘glamorous Show Business stories’, well, let’s just say everyone gets their ‘just deserts’.
