Product Description

George S Kaufman and Edna Ferber collaborated on this 1927 hit comedy about an eminent and slightly eccentric theatrical clan - loosely inspired by the Barrymore family (John, Lionel and Ethel). A Barrymore-like brood, the Cavendishes are as flamboyant offstage as they are on. Their real-life family drama occurs in a Manhattan apartment when the grand matriarch, Fanny Cavendish, learns that her daughter and granddaughter may both be giving up the stage for marriage. Complicating the situation is the arrival of Fanny's son, Tony - a matinee idol on the run from a breach-of-promise suit. Theatre legends Rosemary Harris, Eva Le Gallienne, Sam Levine and Ellis Rabb have great fun portraying characters they know all too well from their years on the stage.
