When Garbo Talks! – A world premiere musical about Greta Garbo set during Hollywood’s Golden Age and the transition from silent films to talking pictures. Seventeen year-old Swedish acting student Greta Gustafsson is discovered by Sweden’s genius film director, Mauritz Stiller, who uses her talent to angle his way into Hollywood. All goes according to plan until Garbo and Stiller realize that MGM’s Louis B. Mayer has a plan of his own. Hearts break and careers plummet as Garbo challenges the studio system to become MGM’s highest paid actress and biggest international star.
