THE DANCE OF DEATH PLAY CAST
Ben Gazzara and Coleen Dewhurst sign their names on a Playbill for a production of The Dance of Death
Show bill signed: "Coleen Dewhurst", "Ben Gazzara", in blue ink, 30 pages, 5¾x9. Playbill for a production of The Dance of Death at the Shubert Theatre in New York. BEN GAZZARA (1930-2012) is an Emmy-winning American actor of stage, TV and movies. Gazzara began studying acting after dropping out of the engineering program at City College of New York and got his start on stage and TV. His first Broadway role, as Jocko de Paris End as a Man (1953-54), earned him a 1954 Theatre World Award. He went on to create the role of Brick in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955-1956) and star in A Hatful of Rain (1955-1956); both of these roles were played by other actors in the film adaptations. However, Gazzara was recast as Jocko Paris in the 1957 film adaptation of End as a Man, one of his first movie roles, and managed to steal scenes from Jimmy Stewart in Anatomy of a Murder, two years later. Gazzara moved to TV after failing to find adequate movie roles and, since his role as Leon Uris' counterpart in QB VII, has favored off-beat roles, including a bisexual villain in Road House (1989) and dysfunctional characters in Buffalo '66, Happiness and The Big Lebowski (all 1998). He continues to appear in movies and TV shows, totaling over 100 credits. On Broadway from 1955, COLEEN DEWHURST (1924-1991) became one of America's foremost interpreters of such pantheon playwrights as Eugene O'Neill and Edward Albee; she won a 1981 Tony Award for her performance in the revival of O'Neill's A Moon for the Misbegotten. The forceful, deep-throated Dewhurst was not always easy to cast in films, but she chalked up several memorable movie portrayals, not least of which was as Diane Keaton's WASP-ish mom in Annie Hall (1977). Her TV work included the delightful "middle aged pregnancy" comedy And Baby Makes Six (1979) and numerous appearances as Candice Bergen's mom on Murphy Brown. Fine condition.
