4/9 Light Up the Sky
This Tuesday, April 9th, we will be reading “Light Up the Sky” by Moss Hart.
The play takes place in the hotel room of Miss Livingston prior to the opening of a new play out of town and follows a truck-driver-turned-playwright watching his first play being produced in Boston. This backstage comedy features the grandly temperamental leading lady; her sarcastic, gin rummy playing mother; the flamboyant director; the lowbrow producer; and his ice-skating, wisecracking wife. The opening night seems to go awry and the producer, cast, etc, believe it is a flop and turn against themselves, the producer and the author. However, when it turns out that the reviews are favorable, the tables are turned.
