Ten years ago, actor Sean Hayes and playwright David Adjmi were working together to develop a play based on the life of Oscar Levant, the actor, pianist and notorious wit of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Now Hayes is preparing to bring Good Night, Oscar to Broadway next spring. The play is written by Doug Wright. Exactly how, why and when Hayes and Adjmi split up their partnership on the project is being disputed by both sides in an unusually public way.

Adjmi wrote a long Facebook post detailing his perspective earlier this week, as publicity for Good Night, Oscar is just beginning to emerge.

Theater twitter took note, as did The New York Times. In response, Hayes, Wright and their producer Beth Williams have released their own extensive statement, obtained by Deadline.
