Live Performance | Lux Radio Theatre: “My Man Godfrey”
August 21 @ 3:00 pm
Experience a live theatrical rendition of the 1936 Academy Award-nominated comedy, “My Man Godfrey,” one of Hollywood’s most treasured commentaries on class and social unrest during the Great Depression.
Manhattan socialite Irene Bullock needs a “forgotten man” to win a scavenger hunt, and no one fits that description more than Godfrey Park, who lives in a Hooverville dump. Irene hires Godfrey as a family servant, to the chagrin of her spoiled sister, Cornelia, who tries her best to get Godfrey fired. As Irene falls for her new butler, Godfrey turns the tables and teaches the frivolous Bullocks a lesson or two.
