The script for this histrionics has been written by B. Comden & A. Green, music belongs to N. H. Brown, lyrics – to A. Freed. The core of considered creation is the eponymous film of 1952, called by many experts as Hollywood’s autobiography. It tells about the last days of silent movie strata & in particular, focuses on the star D. Lockwood, his sidekick C. Brown, beginning actress K. Selden & eternal partner of the protagonist L. Lamont, whose voice was not suitable for sound films at all. Production is made in the classic two-act style.

Gennaro. The cast included T. Steele, R. Castle, D. Carson & S. Payne. After such a successful path in Europe, it was decided to move the show to Broadway. The first performance was demonstrated to the audience in July 1985 in the Gershwin Theatre. The directorship & choreography were given to T. Tharp. Stars were: D. Correia, M. D'Arcy & F. Grant. Prior to the closing in May 1986, viewers saw 367 performances with 38 preliminaries.
