Say Goodnight Gracie  

DESCRIPTION: In Say Goodnight Gracie, George Burns looks back upon his impoverished, plucky youth on the lower east side of New York and his disastrous but tenacious early years in vaudeville, all leading up to the momentous day when he met a talented young Irish girl named Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen, whose endearing dizziness was a perfect match to his flawless comic timing. Together, they rose to the pinnacles of vaudeville, film, radio and television. Gracie's early retirement and untimely death forced George to start from square one, in life as well as in his career. Eventually, he achieved an equal level of success as a solo raconteur and Academy Award-winning actor. With vintage photographs and video clips from film and television performances, Say Goodnight Gracie brings to life Burns's fascinating story. Say Goodnight Gracie is Broadway's third-longest running solo performance show, having played 364 performances at the Helen Hayes Theatre. It won the 2003-04 National Broadway Theatre Award for Best Play and was nominated for a 2003 TonyŽ Award in the same category. Frank Gorshin received a 2003 Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance for his portrayal of George Burns. Written by Rupert Holmes, this production is directed by Michael White. The October 30 performance will be followed by a talk-back with Alan Safier and playwright Rupert Holmes, moderated by Entertainment Weekly senior editor Thom Geier.
