Overview


Synopsis

A Day in Hollywood is the first half of the show and features songs, sketches, and dance numbers all performed by a chorus of ushers and usherettes at Gruman's Chinese Theater back in the 1930s. A lot of the pieces have to do with the great musicals of the silver screen, along with such ephemera as a musical homage to film clichés and a tap salute to the 1930 Production Code governing on-screen sex and violence. The second half, A Night in the Ukraine, features a pastiche of Marx brothers comedies. It is set in the stately mansion of Mrs Pavlenko, a wealthy Ukrainian widow and introduces the audience to character types as featured in the Marx Brothers' films.
