It’s 1929 as The Jazz Singer hits the silver screen and the talkies promise to change movies forever. Enter three down-and-out vaudevillians who hatch a hare-brained scheme to “make it big” in Tinsel Town. Their plan? To open a voice academy for the witless stars of silent movies. The only things standing in their way are ditzy starlets and power-hungry movie moguls. Starring Ed Asner and directed by Moss Hart’s son, this is top-of-the-bill screwball comedy and Kaufman and Hart genius at its very best

Famous for his deadly satire and Broadway connections, Moss Hart (1904-1961) wrote and collaborated on some of the biggest Broadway successes of the early twentieth century, such as Camelot, The Man Who Came To Dinner and You Can't Take It With You. His 1959 autobiography sketches a theatre lover and frequently acerbic critic, targetting, among others, Marlon Brando and Marlene Dietrich. His creative partnership with George S. Kaufman is considered one of the greatest in Broadway's history.
