Award-winning dramatist and director Moss Hart honored with US Postage Stamp

October 5th, 2004

A witty and charming personality who embodied the glamour of Broadway, award-winning dramatist and director Moss Hart will be honored by the U.S. Postal Service with a new commemorative postage stamp to be issued Oct. 25.

A gifted playwright, Hart wrote a series of sparkling comedies in the 1930s with the noted playwright and director George S. Kaufman. Also a brilliant director, Hart staged one of the most dazzling musicals of his era, My Fair Lady.

The stamp art shows a painting by Tim O'Brien, based on a photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt showing Hart in Times Square.
