THE WILL ROGERS FOLLIES PLAY CAST
Playbill signed on the cover by Larry Gatlin and Mac Davis, the second and third performers to portray Will Rogers in the hit musical
Show Bill signed: "Mac Davis", "Larry Gatlin", 66 pages, 5½x8½. Playbill for a production of The Will Rogers Follies at New York's Palace Theatre, signed on the front cover. The Will Rogers Follies, inspired by the words of the legendary Oklahoma humorist, ran for 989 performances on Broadway (May 1991-September 1993), with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolf Green, and choreography by Tommy Tune. Keith Carradine originated the title role, which was assumed by Mac Davis in May 1992 and by Larry Gatlin in February 1993. Singer/songwriter MAC DAVIS (born Scott Davis in 1942) was one of the most popular entertainers in the U.S. in the mid-1970s. Davis, who wrote songs for Glen Campbell, Lou Rawls, Bobby Goldsboro, Kenny Rogers & the First Edition and Elvis, who recorded his "A Little Less Conversation" and "In the Ghetto", had his first No. 1 hit with "Baby Don't Get Hooked on Me" (1972) and also recorded "Stop and Smell the Roses", a No. 10 pop single, and "I Believe in Music". He also hosted a musical variety show on NBC from 1974-1976 and appeared on a number of specials. Davis made his film debut in 1979's North Dallas Forty and was named one of the twelve "Most Promising New Actors of 1979" in John Willis' "Screen World". Davis, who next appeared in Cheaper to Keep Her in 1980, would later star in The Sting II (1983) and Where the Red Fern Grows (2000) and in several made-for-TV movies. LARRY GATLIN (b. 1948) was the first of the Gatlins to make the jump to professional music, moving to Nashville in the early 1970s. The rest is history from his 1976 Grammy for Best Country Song ("Broken Lady") to the brothers' induction into the Grand Ole Opry in 1976. 1977's High Time (Larry Gatlin with Brothers and Friends) featured the No. 1 hit "I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love". In 1991, the Brothers launched an epic farewell tour, then retired from music. Larry Gatlin later appeared in the Broadway musical The Will Rogers Follies. Since 2010, Larry Gatlin has been a political and social commentator on Fox News. The Will Rogers Follies has been the only Broadway appearance of Davis and Gatlin to date. Lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
