Good Night, Oscar on Broadway Background
Sean Hayes returns to Broadway starring in Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright’s new play, Good Night, Oscar.
Good Night, Oscar explores the nexus of humor and heartbreak, the ever-dwindling distinction between exploitation and entertainment, and the high cost of baring one’s soul for public consumption. Just how far will anyone go for fame and how far will Oscar Levant fear to tread.
What’s Good Night, Oscar Like?
It’s 1958, and Jack Paar still hosts the hottest late-night talk-show on television. The Tonight Show. His favorite guest? Character actor, pianist and wild card Oscar Levant.
Levant is famous for his biting one-liners and Oscar has a favorite line that he often quips: “There’s a fine line between genius and insanity; I have just erased that line.”
On The Tonight Show, Oscar will prove just how far he will go when he appears live on national TV in an episode of Jack Paar’s Show that none will never forget.
Is Good Night, Oscar Good for Kids?
Although the show is somewhat vanilla, there are a few swear words and nude scenes that may not be appropriate for children. Over 16 recommended.
