A hilarious comedy by V. Cate and Duke Ernsberger Directed by Barry Corlew and Bob Petrucelli The year is 1930 and Ben Hecht, the famous Hollywood writer, has just finished his screenplay for a movie produced by Howard Hughes called SCARFACE, loosely based on the real life story of Al Capone. The movie is going to be a blockbuster and Hecht considers the script to be the best he’s ever written. It all looks like a Hollywood ending….until the script disappears….only to turn up in the hands of two of Capone’s men who have been sent by Al to have a little “talk” with Ben. The jokes fly fast and thick in this hilarious comedy as Hecht tries to duck gangsters on one hand and the Hollywood censors on the other.

Classic Albums Live takes classic albums and performs them live, on stage—note for note, cut for cut—using the world's greatest musicians. From Craig Martin, founder of Classic Albums Live: “The very first track of [Rumours] lets you know that heartache awaits. It’s not easy to fall apart, then sing about it, then have 25 million people buy it. It was therapy and it paid great. The vocals are tricky; there’s nuance and layering and thunder and the guitars are orchestral. Plus, the vibe of the album—the feel—that’s hard to recreate. What’s cool about this record is that everyone knows all the words, even the ushers at the shows, so when CAL hits the stage and plays this masterpiece it is joyous.”
