Show Bill signed: "Tony/Randall", "José Ferrer", "Alexandra/Danilova", 40 pages, 5½x9. Playbill for a production of Oh, Captain! at New York's Alvin Theatre (1958). This 2-act musical comedy, based on a book by Ferrer, was nominated for a Tony, as was Tony Randall in the starring role. TONY RANDALL (1920-2004) was an accomplished radio and stage actor from the late 1940s. From the late 1950s, he starred in successful film comedies, including Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter (1957), Pillow Talk (1959) and Lover Come Back (1961). Perhaps best remembered as Felix Unger in the TV version of The Odd Couple (1969-1974), other TV roles included The Tony Randall Show (1976) and the Emmy-winning Dear Sydney (1981-1982). Sometimes in trouble with the networks for his outspoken politics, he was also in demand for quiz shows because of his encyclopedic knowledge of trivia. JOSÉ FERRER (1912-1992) won the 1950 Academy Award for Best Actor for reprising his 1947 Tony Award winning title role in Cyrano de Bergerac. He had previously been nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar as the Dauphin in Joan of Arc (1948) and would be nominated again for Best Actor in 1952 for his portrayal of painter Toulouse-Lautrec in Moulin Rouge. Russian-born ballerina ALEXANDRA DANILOVA (1903-1997), who studied at the Imperial School in St. Petersburg, joined the Mariinsky troupe in 1921 and was promoted to soloist a year later. A dancer for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes (1924-1929), Basil's Ballets Russes (1933-1938) and Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo (1938-1952), she toured with her own group, Great Moments of Ballet, from 1954-1956. One of the most popular dancers of her time, Danilova danced all the major ballerina roles and created principal roles in a number of works, including The Triumph of Neptune (1926), Le Bal (1928), Dances concertantes (1944) and La sonnambula (1946), and was a guest dancer with Saddler's Wells Ballet (1949) and London Festival Ballet (1951). A teacher at the American Ballet from 1964-1989, she published her autobiography, Choura (her nickname), in 1986, the year she received the Handel Medallion in New York. Danilova was also a Kennedy Center Honoree in 1989. Corners and edges lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
