She signs a show bill for 1939 production of The Straw Hat Revue
Show Bill signed: "Imogene/Coca" on cover, 22p, 6¾x9¼. Program for The Straw Hat Revue, beginning 1939 November 27 at the Ambassador Theatre, New York. This play, staged by Max Liebman, with music and lyrics by Sylvia Fine and James Shelton, ran for only two months despite a distinguished cast that included Danny Kaye (in his first Broadway appearance) and Jerome Robbins. Comic actress Coca (1908-2001) was on stage from 1925 and in films from 1937, often in skits parodying everything from ballet to heavy drama. She is most famous, however, as Sid Caesar's comic partner on TV's Your Show of Shows (1950-1954), winning an Emmy in 1952. Her talents were underutilized in subsequent TV series. Film highlights included a dying aunt in National Lampoon's Vacation (1983). She was nominated for a Tony as Best Featured Actress in a Musical for On the Twentieth Century (1978). Cover is separated at mid-vertical fold, 1-inch at upper margin, 2-inch at lower margin. Inside pages have separated from staples. Overall, fine condition.
