BEST PLAYWRIGHT! 2007 – Backstage West Garland Award WinnerSet in theatre legend Zero Mostel's painting studio on West 28th Street, a naive reporter attempts to interview the famously volatile artist, prompting an explosion of memory, humor, outrage and juicy backstage lore. Mostel is remembered for his comedic genius and his definitive roles, but in the 1950's he was equally known for his place on the infamous Hollywood blacklist. Mostel's swagger, ferocity, intelligence and fantastic wit is brought back to the stage in this volcanic tour-de-force.
