In a recent article in New York Magazine, Frank Rich calls ACT ONE, "The greatest showbiz book ever written."

Growing up in an impoverished immigrant family in the Bronx, Moss Hart dreamed of being part of the glamorous, magical world of show business- someday, somehow. From dropping out of school to becoming the toast of the town, his autobiography ACT ONE recounts the making of a Broadway legend.

Now Lincoln Center Theater presents ACT ONE, wonderfully adapted for the stage by Tony Award-winning writer and director James Lapine (Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods). A cast of 22 plays over 40 parts in this funny, heartbreaking and suspenseful portrait of the artist as a young man.
