They say you've gotta be tough as nails to withstand the knocks of show business and make it to the big time. Nothing illustrates this better than Moonlight and Magnolias, a Laguna Playhouse stage production showcasing the hilarious exploits of a script writer hired to condense the unwieldy screenplay of Gone With the Wind in just five days... without ever having read the book. An entertaining peak behind the facade of Hollywood's Golden Age, Moonlight and Magnolias delivers delicious dialog chock full of witty quips and captures the high pressure stakes of creating one of the most esteemed movies of all time.
