Role Description

Moss Hart: (Lead) the renowned American playwright and director. We see Moss from his late teens to mid-20s, smart, charming, resilient, scrappy, curious and tenacious, a Jewish kid from the streets of NY. He is single-minded in his ambition to have a life and career in the theater, which was an escape and solace from his hard scrabble life of poverty. Born in 1904 to Jewish immigrant parents and raised in the Bronx, he worked his way up in the world of the theater from an office boy to a playwright. Although he was always under pressure, because his family depended on him financially, he managed to remain optimistic with a sense of humor.
