New York, Program Publishing Company(N.D.). No date (1956) . First edition. Original illustrated paper wrappers with full page (magazine size) black-and-white cover photograph of the actors playing Anne and Otto Frank embracing. 4to. 16 pages; 30 cm. A collectors' souvenir program from the Original Broadway Production of "The Diary of Anne Frank" with the original cast. Features dozens of fabulous black-and-white photos, some headshots, some archival, and some candids from the show with lines from the play beneath them. The entire cast and crew of the production, Kermit Bloomgarden, Joseph Schildkraut, Susan Strasberg, Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, Dennie Moore, Jack Gilford, Clinton Sundberg, Lou Jacobi, Garson Kanin, Boris Aronson, Helene Pons, and Leland Watson, had successful careers in the entertainment industry. Joseph Schildkraut, the actor who played Otto Frank, was a prolific film and theatre actor who performed in Show Boat (1927) , The Twilight Zone (1961) , Marie Antoinette (1938) among several others. He "received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Alfred Dreyfus in The Life of Emile Zola (1937) " and was nominated for a Best Actor Emmy Award in 1963 (Wikipedia, 2016) . Susan Strasberg, daughter of Lee Strasberg of the Actors Studio, was "the youngest actress to star on Broadway with her name above the marquee title" for her Tony nominated role as Anne Frank in this production (Wikipedia, 2016) . Strasberg starred and guest-starred in many other roles throughout her career and wrote two books, one an autobiography and one about her friendship with Marilyn Monroe. Jack Gilford, the actor who played Mr. Dussel, was discovered by his mentor Milton Berle, was nominated for several Tony Awards and an Academy Award, and started the comedy tradition of monology later used by comedians such as Lenny Bruce and Woody Allen. His career was derailed when choreographer Jerome Robbins named him and his wife, Madeline Lee, as Communist sympathizers to HUAC. This is one of the fancier programs that you have to purchase, rather than the playbill programs that they give out. SUBJECT(S) : Anne Frank, Broadway, Theatre. OCLC lists no holdings worldwide. Minimal markings and wear. Very good + condition. (Holo2-133-10)
