VENUE: DUCHESS THEATRE, London.
PRODUCTION CREDITS: Joyce Blair, Blayne Barrington, Rita Burton, William Ellis, Sheila White, Kevin Scott. Directed by Neal Kenyon. Music by Jim Wise. Lyrics by George Haimsohn and Robin Miller.
NOTES: The musical is a parody of large, flashy 1930s Busby Berkeley-style movie musicals in which an understudy steps into a role on Broadway and becomes a star. It originally played Off-Off-Broadway in 1966 at the Caffe Cino, starring newcomer Bernadette Peters and then played Off-Broadway beginning in 1968 for a successful run. On August 27, 1969, the show opened at London's Duchess Theatre, where it ran for 127 performances. Variant style POSTER used later in the run, with the words ‘the New 30’s musical’ replaced with the words ‘the Now 30’s musical’. Design by Shulenberg.
CONDITION: Grade A. Rolled (but has been stored flat since new). Fine.
