ONCE IN A LIFETIME PLAY CAST, CO-SIGNED BY: JOHN LITHGOW, GEORGE S. IRVING, JAYNE MEADOWS The three starring actors sign their names on a Playbill for a production of Once in a Lifetime at the Circle in the Square Theatre Show bill cover signed: "George S. Irving", "John Lithgow", "love/Jayne/Meadows/Allen", in blue ink, 40 pages, 5½x9. Stage and screen actress Jayne Meadows (1919-2015) began her film career in the mid-1940s as a contract player at MGM. She excelled as cold-blooded "other women", vitriolic divorcees and neurotic murderesses. One popular screen role was as the double- and triple-crossing Mildred Haveland in Lady in the Lake (1946). Meadows has appeared on dozens of variety programs and game shows. Her film credits include Casino (1995) and The Player (1992). Over the course of her career, she was nominated for three Primetime Emmy Awards in three different decades. She married multitalented comedian, actor, author and songwriter Steve Allen (1921-2000) in 1954. The two made guest appearances as a couple in a few different television productions until his death. Her sister was fellow actress Audrey Meadows (1922-1996). A distinguished actor of stage, television, and movies who is at home playing everything from menacing villains, big-hearted transsexuals, and loopy aliens, JOHN LITHGOW (b. 1945) is also a composer and performer of children's songs, a Harvard graduate and a talented painter. Lithgow got his start in the early 1970s on Broadway. He remained in New York for many years, establishing himself as one of Broadway's most respected stars. Lithgow got his first real break and a Best Supporting Actor nomination when he played macho football player-turned-sensitive woman Roberta Muldoon in The World According to Garp (1982). He earned a second Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for Terms of Endearment (1983). Lithgow won two Tony Awards (1973, 2002), three Drama Desk Awards (1973, 1985, 2002) as well as the 2010 Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series for his performance in the Showtime television series Dexter. GEORGE S. IRVING (1922-2016) is an actor most known for his character roles on Broadway, making his stage debut in the original production of Oklahoma! in 1943. Several days later, Irving was drafted for World War II, not returning to acting until 1946 in the musical Call Me Mister. His success on stage grew after several plays, eventually making his way into starring roles in such plays as Shinbone Alley (1957), Alfie! (1964), Irene (1973), and Me and My Girl (1986). His performances in Irene and Me and My Girl were both critically praised, with Irene winning him a Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical. In addition to his stage roles, he did several voice acting roles, most famously voicing Heat Miser in the classic The Year Without a Santa Claus (1974). Corners lightly worn and creased. Ink transfer. Toned. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
