Newspaper advertisement, 1½x1½, for their Broadway play, Twice Around the Park, affixed at right margin. Twice Around the Park, which played at the Cort Theatre on Broadway from November 4, 1982-February 20, 1983, was a compilation of two comedies, A Need for Brussels Sprouts, which starred Jackson as Margaret Heinz and Wallach as Leon Rose, and A Need for Less Expertise, in which Jackson played Edie Frazier and Wallach played Gus Frazier.ELI WALLACH(1915-2014) was an American actor who made his presence felt on stage and on the screen. He made his Broadway debut in 1945, making his television debut six years later in an episode of Lights Out (1946-1952). After proving his acting chops in various other guest appearances on television, he made his film debut in Baby Doll (1956), a film written by Tennessee Williams and directed by Elia Kazan. Wallach notched a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of Silva Vacarro. The actor racked up over 150 acting credits, including major roles in films like The Magnificent Seven (1960), The Misfits (1961), The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), The Godfather: Part III (1990), and Mystic River (2003). Wallach spent most of his career playing mobsters and other exotic outlaws. He also maintained a stage career, appearing in dozens of stage productions on Broadway and Off-Broadway until 2000. Perhaps his most famous stage work came in the 1951 production The Rose Tattoo, another piece written by Tennessee Williams. He earned his only Tony Award for this role. After marrying Anne Jackson in 1948, the two often appeared on stage together in Williams plays. Despite his numerous iconic screen credits, Wallach always insisted that the live theater stage was a higher plane of art. Over the course of his 60-year acting career, Wallach won a Tony Award (1951), an Emmy Award (1967), and an Obie Award (1963). ANNE JACKSON (1926-2016) is best remembered for her role in Lovers and Other Strangers (1970). Her other film credits include Tall Story (1960), The Tiger Makes Out (1967), The Secret Life of An American Wife (1968), Nasty Habits (1976), and The Shining (1980). Slightly soiled. Card lightly rippled at blank right margin. Light show through of mounting glue on advertisement (all legible). Otherwise, fine condition.
