Tony nominee Sean Hayes plays Oscar Levant, a respected wit from Hollywood's mid-century whose self deprecating style of humor made him a familiar face on the late night television circuit.

Wright's play is set in 1958, while Jack Paar is hosting The Tonight Show. He’s booked his favorite guest, Levant. In 90 minutes, Levant will have audiences howling, censors scrambling, and, when it’s all over, America will be just a little less innocent than she was before. The work premiered in 2022 at Chicago's Goodman Theatre with Hayes leading the cast.

Hayes is joined by Marchánt Davis as Alvin Finney, Alex Wyse as Max Weinbaum, Emily Bergl as June Levant, Peter Grosz as Bob Sarnoff, Ben Rappaport as Jack Paar, and John Zdrojeski as George Gershwin. The production's understudies are Sam Bell-Gurwitz, Postell Pringle, Max Roll, Thomas Michael Hammond, and Stephanie Janssen.

Good Night, Oscar features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Ben Stanton and Carolina Ortiz Herrera, sound design by André Pluess, music supervision by Chris Fenwick, wig, hair, and makeup design by J. Jared Janas, casting by Stephen Kopel, and dramaturgy by Jacqueline E. Lawton.

The project is the second attempt to craft a play around Hayes portraying Levant. Playwright David Adjmi recently alleged that his own Levant play, written for Hayes and the same producing team behind Good Night, Oscar, was stymied by the development of Wright's.
