This innocuous program belies its importance. The theatre on the wharf pictured on the cover is where it all began in 1915 when many shining lights turned up in Provincetown, one of whom, was playwright Eugene O'Neil who came bearing a trunkful of plays. The would-be actors picked one, staged it, and began what would become a string of hits that even went to Broadway. One of the those plays, The Children of the Moon, which is the one playing here in this program, debuted on Broadway in 1923 starring Beatrice Terry, an actress descended from the famous theatrical Terry family. The biggest star ... View more info

Very nice clean program which is more leaflet than booklet, but not too often seen. It's not a play, more of a review with a number of different acts including the Amin Brothers, Paul Sydell, Joe Smith and Charlie Dale, Giselle and Francois Szony. Alan King (comedian), and primarily -- JUDY GARLAND! There's info about each act, but Judy takes center stage. Measures 6"x9" and is clean with no tears and no names. It was folded vertically at one time, but is totally flat now. Very nice. View more info

Magazine is so crisp and clean it's hard to believe its age. It's an oversized one measuring 10"x14" and dedicated to entertainment after dark -- dining, dancing, movies and theatre. There's lots to read and photos of many talents of the day, including the author, Somerset Maugham, Tallulah Bankhead and more. There's also a fun feature showing half the face of a star and half that of an historical personage. Also there's a story on caricatures,a piece on George M. Cohan starring on Broadway as Franklin Delano Roosevelt and how supper clubs needed more than beauty from their entertainers-- th... View more info

Beautifully clean, sophisticated magzine which addresses all of the performing arts and other night time pleasures in the city. The ads are wonderful -- many, if not most, are for high end items. There's always a lot to read in these and this one is no exception. The big stories are a play called I'd Rather Be Right which was a lampoon about President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, an essay about being a foot soldier in the battle of prohibition; and the new Disney Studio's movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This issue also offers ideas for Christmas presents, plus drink recipes that had been... View more info

It's relatively easier to find Earl Carroll ephemera from his California night club days than it is from his earlier NYC theatre. But here we have a program from his seventh Follies, this time featuring the famous W.C. Fields. The program has very nice ads and lot of photos of the performers including a large picture of Fields. What's also fun is a close-up article about Carroll's eccentricities, of which there were many! The program measures 9"x12" and has 25 pristine pages. Nice quality item, clean and tightly bound with just a tiny abrasion to front cover. View more info

Very nice clean, tightly bound magazine with a complete spine stip. The yapped edges have been trimmed, but they did their job keeping the pages pristine. The advertising at both front and back is fun in itself, but there's also much to read, including four complete pieces of fiction. There's two articles about beauty -- one as related to actresses (who out-earned their male counterparts)and also beauty and the 50 year old woman. Other topics include police systems in Europe, The Young Napoleon, and Von Lenbach the painter. View more info

THIS is the most beautiful of all the booklets showcasing the Cleveland Playhouse. It's from the 70's prior to its closing and eventual reopening in 1982. The pages aren't numbered, but they're substantial, all printed on quality coated paper with black and white photographs and many color spreads. The text is likewise substantial and very interesting.

Very nice entertainment magazine devoted to nighttime pleasures including dining and dancing, but especially theatre. It's oversized at 10"x14" and has 116 pages. Lots to read, but I think the main story is Men At Work, a lengthy look at musical greats George Kaufman, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. Another fun p0iece is about going to Russia to make the rounds of the Russian theaters. Also of interest are the story of the musical White Horse Inn,T he Alchemy of Music, and the New York Angle on World Wide Fashion. The subscription card is unused and still bound it and there is no mailing label. View more info

Interview Magazine is a fun read. In addition to lots of close-up looks at famous people from all walks of life, it's also filled with gorgeous ads for high-end products. If you love graphic art you will love those ads. This issue of course has an interview with Catherine Oxenberg who is best known for her role on the TV show Dynasty and her portrayal of Princess Diana, but also these interviews too: The Kennedy Cousins (dynasty); Samantha Fox, Kathryn Harrold, Little Nell, William J.

I saw the word Playbill on the spine of the binder and had to have it, especially when I saw that the shows were older, from 1968 to the 80's. There are 14 programs in all, most of which are Playbills from the various New York City Broadway theaters, but there's also a couple from community theaters close by but outside the city, including Jones Beach. Some programs have ticket stubs stapled to them which is always a bonus. New York shows include The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie; Plaza Suite; 1776; Company; Sleuth; No, No Nanette; Annie; Peter Pan and more. Very nice find for a theater buff. View more info

I am amazed that I recognized John Davidson on the cover of this booklet, but somehow I did. I don't think I've seen him since the 70's. But he is still very much an entertainer appearing in musical theater and on television. The booklet is filled with photographs of him in various roles and performances, plus as a child and teen, though of course the book derives from 1967, very early in his career. Photos are in both black and white and color. The bold signature you see in the photo in printed on the page -- not hand-signed. Booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11" with 20 pages containing biographical...
