Storefront Theatre Production: Don’t Cry for Me Margaret Mitchell

It’s 1939, and three men – David O. Selznick, Victor Fleming, and Ben Hecht — have to rewrite the screenplay to Gone with the Wind in seven days… and one of them has never read the book. Hilarious, irreverent and mostly true. Playwrights Ernsberger and Cate always have us rolling in the aisles, but especially in this delightful comedy
