John Dayton’s play, “Spence And Me,” about Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy’s last days at 9191 St.Ives Place in West Hollywood, has been bought by David Brown’s Manhattan Project and Bill Self’s Productions. It will be co-produced either on B’way or Off B’way, Dayton told me. Tony-winner Jery Zaks will direct and he has been in talks with Dayton on ideas for the play. Zaks will direct a reading on July 23 in the penthouse of David Brown and Helen Gurley Brown. Dayton reminds me that Bill Self and David Brown both knew Tracy and Hepburn during their long love affair. Dayton was Hepburn’s longtime friend who produced these Hepburn-starring TV movies, “The Man Upstairs” (CBS), “This Can’t Be Love” (CBS) and “One Christmas.” I will always remember the touching lunch we had with Kate and John Dayton in her Turtle Bay apartment in New York.
