Tony and Emmy Award-winning writer Rupert Holmes brings the new play "Say Goodnight Gracie: The Life, Laughter, and Love of George Burns and Gracie Allen" direct from a Broadway run.
About the show: In Say Goodnight Gracie, theater audiences will take a guided tour through an American century told through the eyes of George Burns, who savored each day from his impoverished youth on the lower East side, to his career in Vaudeville, his marriage to Gracie Allen, their rise to success on stage, screen, radio, and TV, and finally George's "second time around."
Say Goodnight Gracie plays at the Wilson Center for the Arts on Florida State College at Jacksonville's South Campus (11901 Beach Blvd.) from Wednesday, February 29th – Sunday, March 4th for six performances only!
The Artist Series states, "Say Goodnight Gracie is the hit Broadway play that invites you to spend a hilarious, heart-warming evening in the uplifting company of the world's favorite and funniest centenarian. George Burns, who spanned 100 years of American entertainment history, is now miraculously alive and kicking in a stunning tour de force. Say Goodnight Gracie was Broadway's third longest-running solo performance show and was nominated for a 2003 Tony Award for BEST PLAY. The play also won the 2003-04 National Broadway Theatre Award for BEST PLAY."
Say Goodnight Gracie is a multimedia presentation that also features the vocal talents of actress Didi Conn ("Frenchie" from GREASE) as well as images from George's long life and good times. The play has been created with the approval and cooperation of the Estate of George Burns and Gracie Allen. Its author is multiple Tony Award-winning playwright Rupert Holmes, whose Broadway credits include the Tony Award-winning musical The Mystery Of Edwin Drood and who is also creator and writer of the nostalgic Emmy Award-winning comedy series Remember WENN.
