The Best People

   Avery Hopwood brought his expertise to a play by David Gray titled Goodness Knows, and the result was a very funny comedy that ran for 144 performances at the Lyceum Theatre, opening 19 August 1924. Acts 1 and 3 are set in the home of the "best people," the snobbish Lenox family. The flaws of the younger generation show up particularly in act 2, at a not-entirely-respectable Broadway restaurant. Perhaps the decent, hard-working chorus girl and the chauffeur to whom the Lenox siblings are attracted are truly the "best people."
