Overview

Beau Bridges, winner of three Emmys, two Golden Globes, and a Grammy Award, teams up with his daughter, actress Emily Bridges, to create this stage version of Richard Boleslavsky’s 1933 narrative about a dedicated acting teacher who, while instructing a young actress in her craft, gives her valuable life lessons as well. Over the course of ten scenes, the action moves from the teacher’s studio, to a small theater, to a film set, to Central Park and back, and, finally, to a moving denouement atop the Empire State Building in 1936.
