This is a rare May 19th, 1932 (Opening Night) playbill from the first Broadway revival of the classic JEROME KERN and OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II musical comedy "SHOW BOAT" at the Casino Theatre in New York City. (The Original Broadway production opened December 27th, 1927 at the Ziegfeld Theatre and ran for 575 performances before going on the road. The show returned to New York's Casino Theatre on May 19th, 1932 for an additional 180 performances.) ..... This masterwork by JEROME KERN and OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II remains one of the greatest of all musicals and possibly the greatest musical theatre score to date. The story starts in the 1880's on one of the many American riverboats that featured traveling shows. The musical starred HELEN MORGAN as "Julie", CHARLES WINNINGER as "Cap'n Andy", NORMA TERRIS as "Magnolia", AUNT JEMIMA (Tess Gardell) as "Queenie", BERTHA BELMORE as "Parthy Ann Hawks", SAMMY WHITE as "Frank", EVA PUCK as "Ellie", DENNIS KING as "Gaylord Ravenal" and PAUL ROBESON as "Joe" and included ALLAN CAMPBELL, CHARLES ELLIS, JAMES SWIFT, FRANCIS X. MAHONEY, THOMAS GUNN, GLADSTONE WALDRIP, PHIL SHERIDAN, JACK DALEY, DOROTHY DENESE, ANNIE HART, ESTELLE FLOYD, V. ANN KAYE, MILDRED SCHWENKE, EVELYN EATON, MARI HELGREN, J. LEWIS JOHNSON, TANA KAMP, GERTRUDE WALKER, MAURINE HOLMES and LAURA CLAIRON ..... CREDITS: Music by JEROME KERN ("Roberta", "Very Good Eddie", "Leave It To Jane", "Sally"); Book and Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN 2nd ("Oklahoma!", "Carousel", "The King and I", "Flower Drum Song", "South Pacific", "The Sound of Music") adapted from the novel by EDNA FERBER; Sets designed by JOSEPH URBAN; Costumes designed by JOHN HARKRIDER; Choreographed by SAMMY LEE; Directed by ZEKE COLVAN; Produced by FLORENZ ZIEGFELD ..... DETAILS: The 26 page playbill measures 7" X 9 1/2" inches and includes full production credits, cast list, scenes and musical numbers and wonderful vintage advertising but with the exception of the front cover, no cast photos or bios ..... CONDITION: This playbill is in fair condition with light soiling and creasing to the covers, bumped corners and a stain in the lower right corner of the title page.
