Moonlight and Magnolias


Clarence Brown Theatre presents “Moonlight and Magnolias” September 8th-25th.

If you love the movie “Gone With The Wind,” then Moonlight and Magnolias is a must see performance for you.

Moonlight and Magnolias is based on a true story. Three weeks into production, David O. Selznick shut the movie down and fired the screenwriter and director. Then he pulled director Victor Fleming off the set of "The Wizard of Oz" and hired script doctor Ben Hecht. With A WEEK to get the job done, he locked himself, Hecht and Fleming in his office – with only bananas and peanuts to eat – to knock out a workable screenplay. The comedy Moonlight and Magnolias imagines what went on behind closed doors as the three Hollywood giants acted out the book to create one of the most beloved movies of all time.


If you have a peanut allergy, it is suggested to not attend the show.
