Sean Hayes Stars As Hollywood Icon Oscar Levant

Emmy winner Sean Hayes (Promises, Promises, Will & Grace) is set to tread the boards once more during the thrilling premiere of Good Night, Oscar at Chicago's Goodman Theatre. Following award-nominated stints on Broadway, the stage and screen veteran is set to portray the iconic character actor, pianist and composer Oscar Levant in Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright's touching tribute to a life less ordinary. Direction comes from Tony-nominated theatremaker Leigh Silverman (Chinglish). 

Best known for his career-defining performance in Hollywood classic An American in Paris, Levant held audiences in his thrall with a caustic sense of humor and subversive wit, which fuelled a dazzling career in radio, TV, film, music and stand up comedy. Good Night Oscar explores the blurred line between exploitation and entertainment during a historic episode of the Jack Paar Show in which the Levant was given a four-hour pass from a mental ward to attend.
