A man who asks to audition at a small theatre is mistaken for an informer for the National Endow- ment for the Arts. Everyone caters to the bewildered wannabe actor and he is given a role in the current production, “A Christmas Carol.” Everything goes wrong and hilarity is piled upon hilarity. A delightful adult comedy for the holidays.

Forced to drop-out of school at age thirteen, Hart’s famous memoir “Act One” is a classic Horatio Alger story that plots Hart’s unlikely collaboration with the legendary playwright George S. Kaufman. Tony Award-winning writer and director James Lapine has adapted “Act One” for the stage, creating a funny, heartbreaking, and suspenseful play that celebrates the making of a playwright and his Pulitzer Prize winning play “ Once in a Lifetime.” SVCT • 17090 Monterey Road Morgan Hill • NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2017 81
