TITLE: SONG OF NORWAY
FORMAT: 40 x 30 inches
VENUE: Generic with space left for overprinting of venue but produced for the PALACE THEATRE, Shaftesbury Avenue, London and the tour that followed.
PRODUCTION CREDITS: Choreography by Robert Helpmann and Pauline Grant. Victoria Campbell, Herbert Armitage, Guy Massey, Brenda Stanley, Frank Rydon, Ivor Evans.
NOTES: After a trial showing in Glasgow, Emile Littler’s spectacular staging of ‘Song of Norway’ moved to London in March 1946, running for 526 performances at the Palace Theatre. It is notable as being the first Broadway show to cross the Atlantic after the end of the Second World War. Later in the year Littler took the show on a UK tour for three years and it became one of his most successful and lucrative productions. This 40 x 30 quad POSTER is incredibly rare and only a bare handful are likely to have survived. It is stone litho printed and in particularly nice condition. A lovely display piece.
PROVENANCE: The Emile Littler/Patrick Selby collection.
CONDITION: Grade A. Folded. VG.
