Review
------

“Moss Hart's Act One is not only the best book ever written about the American theater, but one of the great American
autobiographies, by turns gripping, hilarious and searing.” ―Frank Rich

“Reading Act One is like going to a wonderful dinner party and being seated next to a man who is more charming, more
interesting, smarter, and funnier than you ever knew men were capable of being. Moss Hart is alive in these pages, and I
am in love with him.” ―Ann Patchett, author of This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage and Bel Canto

“Is Act One for you? Only if you know that theater is spelled theatre, cast albums are not soundtracks, and intermission
is twice as fun as halftime. In that case, not only is Act One for you--it is immediate and required reading.” ―Tim
Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever and Five, Six, Seven, Nate!

“Act One is legendary in the theater world for one simple reason: it speaks personally to those of us who have chosen a
life on or around the stage.” ―James Lapine
