★ Inside the writer’s studio with MMT’s Moonlight and Magnolias

moonlight_and_magnolias-919x1024Take a break from writing for a light look at the creative process.

Mill Mountain Theater opens the 2017 Main Stage season with a play about adapting a book for a film – specifically Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind.

Moonlight and Magnolias (Ron Hutchinson, 2004) imagines a last-minute collaborative push. Everything’s ready to go; Selznick just needs a script. So Victor Fleming, Ben Hecht and the producer hole up in a room for five days.

The comedy runs from April 26 to May 7. Get tickets online or at the Center in the Square box office. Season subscriptions are available through April 26.
