Tracy

Description

A one-person play about the life and times of Spencer Tracy. [Acting edition] "No pussyfooting around, no beating around George Bush, TRACY is great." -- Las Virgines News Enterprise "Michael B. Druxman's piece is by no means the nasty expose that has come to be the fashion in so many recent Hollywood biographies. He shows Tracy reacting with human frailties...but it's mostly an admiring look at the man." -- Los Angeles Daily News He's been called "the best film actor Hollywood has ever known." His marvelous performances in classic movies like CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS, ADAM'S RIB, BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK and INHERIT THE WIND endowed him with a tough, solid humorous image -- one that was totally at odds with his own personality. The play opens in 1967 when Tracy was in poor health and struggling to complete what would be his final film, GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER. Alone in his rented guest cottage, he reflects with great guilt on his days as a rough street kid in Milwaukee; his troubled marriage; his drinking problem; the birth of his deaf son; and his romances with Loretta Young and Katharine Hepburn. TRACY is a vivid, often witty, portrait.
