Moss Hart was an award-winning dramatist, director, performer, producer, theater owner and writer. He won a Tony Award as director of the musical My Fair Lady. This portrait shows Hart surrounded by marquee-style titles of three of his famous plays. A fourth marquee displays his name and evokes the iconic feel of Broadway at night.
