Say Goodnight Gracie

1hr. 30min.


Frank Gorshin stars in Say Goodnight Gracie: The Life, Laughter & Love of George Burns. A "last hurrah," as Burns might have offered on his hundredth birthday, the play is a guided tour through an American century told through the eyes of a man who savored each day. From his impoverished youth on the lower East side of New York City, to his career in Vaudeville, his wooing of and unlikely marriage to Gracie Allen, their rise to success on stage, screen, radio and TV, her tragically youthful demise, and finally George's "second time around" as a solo raconteur and Academy Award-winning actor, acclaimed actor Frank Gorshin illuminates George Burns' life in this one-man show, written by Rupert Holmes, and directed by John Tillinger. Winner of the 2003 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo Performance! Playwright Rupert Holmes hosts special talk-back sessions after selected Thursday matinees. Tickets for all Thursday matinees are $50.75. Children under 4 are not permitted into the theatre.
