Goodman Theatre will premiere Good Night, Oscar, starring Emmy-winning actor/producer Sean Hayes ( Broadway's Promises, Promises; NBC-TV's Will & Grace ) as erstwhile character actor, pianist and wild card Oscar Levant.
Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright ( I Am My Own Wife; War Paint ), Good Night, Oscar is directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman ( Chinglish ). Good Night, Oscar will appear in the Goodman's 856-seat Albert Theatre as part of the Goodman Theatre's 2020-21 season; additional plays in the new season will be announced next month, at which time tickets will be available by Goodman Theatre membership.
Levant ( 1906-72 ) was a U.S. concert pianist, composer, actor and raconteur who eventually became one of the most celebrated and sardonic wits of his era. The son of Russian immigrants, Levant, in 1928, moved from New York to Hollywood, where he met and befriended George Gershwin.
