Playbill for a production of The Dresser at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York. TOM COURTENAY (b. 1937) born in Hull, Humberside, England, is an English actor with a long and distinguished stage career, as well as almost 40 TV shows and movie to his credit. He debuted with the Old Vic company in London's West End in 1960. He played the title role in Billy Liar from Albert Finney in 1961, a role that he reprised in the 1963 film adaptation. Courtenay's memorable film roles include rebellious Colin Smith in The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner (1962), Pasha Antipov in Doctor Zhivago (1965), and as Norman, dresser for Finney's character in The Dresser (1981). Courtenay was nominated for acting Oscars for his roles in Doctor Zhivago and The Dresser, as well as Tonys for his roles in Otherwise Engaged (1977) and a 1982 stage adaptation of The Dresser. He was knighted in 2001. English stage and screen actor PAUL ROGERS (1917-2013) won a Tony as Best Actor for Harold' Pinter's The Homecoming (1967). He won a Drama Desk Award as Best Supporting Actor for The Importance of Being Earnest (1961), and received another Tony nomination for Photo Finish (1963). In 1971, Rogers took over the role of Andrew Wyke from Anthony Quayle in the original Broadway production of Sleuth (a role played by Laurence Olivier in the 1972 film and by Michael Caine in the 2007 version). A longtime member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, he has played major roles in the Bard's plays on stage and television. A frequent presence on British (and occasionally US) TV from the mid-1950s to mid 1990s, he appeared occasionally in feature films. LISABETH BARTLETT (b. 1956) would make one more Broadway appearance after this one, with multiple roles in Execution of Justice (1986). She can be seen briefly in the film Amadeus (1984), performing on stage in Mozart's The Magic Flute. MARGE REDMOND (b. 1930), a New York stage veteran, may be best remembered for her Emmy-nominated role as Sister Jacqueline in The Flying Nun (1967-1970), and for her savvy innkeeper, "Sarah Tucker," on TV Cool Whip commercials of the 1970s. She was married for a time to Jack Weston, replaced by Gardenia in the California Suite cast. RACHEL GURNEY (1920-2001), a British actress is probably best known as Lady Marjorie Bellamy in the British TV show Upstairs Downstairs. (She reportedly said of her role, "I would have much rather played one of the servants. They were much nicer people.") She got her start on the West End stage. Her roles there included starring opposite Alec Clunes in Carrington VC (1953) and as Portia in Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice (1955). Corners slightly worn. Heavily toned. Tear and crease on left edge. Ink transfer. Otherwise, fine condition.
