4. “Moonlight and Magnolias”

Written By: Ron Hutchinson

Directed By: Bev Newcomb-Madden, left

Most Recent: “Almost Maine” for the Aurora Fox

The Story: “It’s 1939. David O. Selznick locks author Ben Hecht and director Victor Fleming in his office for five days to rewrite the story of ‘Gone With the Wind.’ Mayhem ensues.”

The Intrigue: “We all know the outcome of the film, yet it’s delightful to see them act out characters as they envision them from the book. And two of them think it’s possibly the worst story ever written and will ruin their careers.”

Personally: “I am grateful to Rod Lansberry for giving me the opportunity to work with this remarkable cast (led by Jordan Leigh, Leslie O’Carroll and Erik Sandvold), and for having continued faith in my abilities.”

    We have never before been so disappointed in an Arvada Center Production! The set is nicely done, but the play itself is terrible. We left after 35 minutes and sincerely wish we had not wasted our time and money in the first place. We cannot imagine why the Arvada Center chose to produce Moonlight and Magnolias; surely, there must be a number of better written works available.
