Skylight Music Theatre presents…

A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine

Book and Lyrics by Dick Vosburgh
Music by Frank Lazarus

Synopsis Summary

Two one-act musicals provide a “double feature” as hilarious as any presented in Hollywood’s heyday.

The first act, A Day in Hollywood, takes us to the lobby of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in the 1930s where the ushers sing a musical tribute to the screen stars and productions of that magical era – including a musical homage to film clichés and a tap salute to the 1930 Production Code governing on-screen sex and violence. The second act, A Night in the Ukraine, is the funniest musical the Marx Brothers never wrote – sweeping us away to Russia for a madcap musical featuring all the usual Marx Brothers suspects, and loosely based on Chekhov’s one-act play, The Bear. Nominated for five Tony Awards, this rollicking, innovative two-musicals-in-one is a guaranteed toe-tapping, belly-laughing delight.
