About Say Goodnight Gracie
Say Goodnight Gracie: The Life, Laughter and Love of George Burns and Gracie Allen was Broadway's third longest running solo performance show and was nominated for a 2003 Tony Award for BEST PLAY and won the 2003-04 National Broadway Theatre Award for BEST PLAY.
Playwright Rupert Holmes has crafted a delightful and poignant tribute to Burns and his wife and acting partner Gracie Allen. Discover an American century told through the eyes of George Burns who savored each day from his impoverished youth on the lower East side to his career in Vaudeville; his marriage to Gracie Allen; their rise to success on stage, screen, radio and TV; and finally George’s “second time around.”
George Burns played by RJ Traff, directed by Misha Johnson.
