Light Up the Sky
It’s the night before the opening of a new play, and the threat of bad reviews hangs in the air. Maybe it’s because it was written by a trucker-turned-artiste. Maybe it’s because the flamboyant director is constantly at odds with the sleaze-minded producer. Maybe it’s the leading lady’s razor-tongued, gin-rummy-obsessed mother, or the leading lady herself, a temperamental Broadway diva in whose hotel room all of the hijinks proceed. The only thing they have in common is the absolute conviction that the play is doomed. So when the reviews actually start rolling in—and they’re glowing—these disparate souls have to come to terms with the fact that they’re all friends again.
Written with the signature sparkling wit of Moss Hart, Light Up the Sky debuted to its own glowing reviews in 1948. But it holds a special spot in the heart of Theatre Arlington. In 1973, this farce was, appropriately, the Theatre’s very first production.
