KIND SIR PLAY CAST
Playbill for a presentation of Kind Sir at the Alvin Theatre, signed by the Pulitzer Prize Award winning playwright, a Tony Award winner and her cast mate.
Inscribed Show Bill signed: "To John- Love Mary Martin", "Dorothy Stickney" and "Joshua/Logan", 28 pages, 6½x9. Playbill for a production of Kind Sir at New York's Alvin Theatre. The show ran for 166 performances from November 4, 1953 to March 27, 1954. Produced by Joshua Logan, the show featured Mary Martin as Jane Kimball and Dorothy Stickney as Margaret Munson. Actress MARY MARTIN (1913-1990) won the Tony Award as Best Actress for South Pacific (1950), Peter Pan (1955) and The Sound of Music (1960), and she was nominated a fourth time for I Do! I Do! (1967). Martin also won a special Tony Award for the national tour of Annie Get Your Gun (1948). She reprised her most famous role, the title character in Peter Pan, for television. Martin was the mother of actor Larry Hagman. Stage, screen and television actress DOROTHY STICKNEY (1896-1998), who began her career in summer stock and in vaudeville, made her Broadway debut in 1926 in The Squall. Her other Broadway plays included The Front Page and Chicago, but Stickney is best known for starring in Life With Father (beginning in 1939), which was written by her husband, Howard Lindsay. The couple, who were married from 1927 until Lindsay's death in 1968, originated the starring roles after the play, which ran for over seven years on the Great White Way, was repeatedly turned down by other producers and actors. Stickney made her film debut in 1931, appearing in such films as Murder at the Vanities (1934), The Uninvited (1943), The Great Diamond Robbery (1953), The Remarkable Mr. Pennypacker (1959) and I Never Sang for My Father (1970). She also appeared in several made-for-TV movies, including The Homecoming: A Christmas Story (1971), and made guest appearances on a number of TV series, including appearing as a bootlegger on the first episode of The Waltons. Stickney died in New York City at the age of 101. JOSHUA LOGAN (1908-1988) made his Broadway acting debut in 1932, but focused thereafter on writing and directing. He received Oscar nominations as Best Director for Picnic (1955) and Sayonara (1957). He won a Pulitzer Prize, along with co-author Oscar Hammerstein II, for South Pacific, which also earned him a Tony. He had already directed a string of Broadway successes before World War II: I Married an Angel, Knickerbocker Holiday, Morning's at Seven and Charlie's Aunt. After the war, in which he served in public relations and intelligence, Logan found even greater success directing Annie Get Your Gun, Mister Roberts, Fanny and of course, South Pacific. Slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
