I am pleased to announce the 19th play in THE HOLLYWOOD LEGENDS collection, BRODERICK CRAWFORD.
As with the last few plays in this series, the subject was a person who I knew.
Broderick Crawford made many movies and appeared countless times on television. He is probably best remembered for films like ALL THE KING'S MEN, for which he won a Best Actor Oscar, and BORN YESTERDAY, as well as his popular TV series, HIGHWAY PATROL.
BRODERICK CRAWFORD is a three person play. Aside from the actor, the other two characters are his parents, vaudevillians Lester Crawford and Helen Broderick. After vaudeville died, Ms. Broderick had a major career as a character actress in movies, appearing in a couple of Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers musicals, as well as in other films.
Performance rights are available for BRODERICK CRAWFORD. You can obtain paperback and Kindle copies on Amazon. (If the link below doesn't work, just copy it into your browser and that should get you right there.)
You have a creative week.
