The Patsy premiered on Broadway in 1925 becoming an instant success. The hit play was then immediately immortalized in film by a quartet of early 20th century luminaries—stars Marion Davies and Marie Dressler, director King Vidor, and producer William Randolph Hearst.
In 2011 six-time Obie Award winner David Greenspan, along with Transport Group Artistic Director Jack Cummings III, put their own spin on the feisty drawing room comedy by giving all eight roles to Greenspan. Now Greenspan and Transport Group once again resurrect this Cinderella story of a girl a little less beautiful, a little less loved and her fractious, gossipy family, which explores a family’s aspirations of wealth, status, and love in pre-depression America.
