Summary: "Act One is a revealing book about the theatre." "It is, of course, a success story, for Moss Hart today is one of the most brilliant, successful and famous figures in the American theatre, both as a playwright and as a director."

With the opening of his first Broadway play, Once in a Lifetime,
his world changed abruptly. This book concludes with a detailed telling of the complicated steps whereby that play came into being.
