Joining the previously announced Santino Fontana and Tony Shalhoub, who will star as playwright/director 'Moss Hart' at different stages of his life, will be Chuck Cooper who won a Tony Award for his role as 'Memphis' in the musical 'The Life' and Andrea Martin who recently won her second Tony Award for her role as 'Berthe' in the musical 'Pippin.'

Act One, both written and directed by three-time Tony Award-winner James Lapine, chronicles Moss Hart's impoverished childhood and his determined struggle to escape poverty and forge a career in the theater. A path which led to his collaboration with George S. Kaufman and their first great success, 'Once In A Lifetime.'

The creative team for Act One features sets by Beowolf Boritt, costumes by Jane Greenwood, lighting by Ken Billington and musical sound by Daniel Moses Schrier.
