Playbill signed on the cover by 4 performers
Show Bill signed: "Tom Courtenay", "Werner/Klemperer", "Bette Henritze", "James Fox", 62 pages, 5½x8½. Playbill for a production of Uncle Vanya at the Circle in the Square Theatre (New York), signed on the front cover. This ninth Broadway production of the classic play by Anton Chekhov, first performed on the Great White Way in 1923, ran for 29 performances (February - March, 1995). English actor TOM COURTENAY (b. 1937) debuted with the Old Vic company in 1960. In 1961, he assumed the title role in Billy Liar from Albert Finney, reprising it in the 1963 film. 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 the film version of The Dresser. Courtenay was nominated for acting Oscars for his roles in Doctor Zhivago and The Dresser, fors Tonys for his roles in Otherwise Engaged (1977) and The Dresser (1981). He was knighted in 2001. Best remembered as heel-klicking, incredibly stupid Colonel Klink on the television series, Hogan's Heroes (1965-1970), actor WERNER KLEMPERER (1920-2000) suppressed his German accent to play an all-American character role as the timorous press agent in the 1957 film, Kiss Them for Me. The capture of fugitive Nazi official Adolph Eichmann in 1960 sparked a renewal of interest in war films, and soon Klemperer found himself playing Eichmann (whom he vaguely resembled) in the 1961 quickie, Operation Eichmann. He also essayed a suitably slimy role as a former Nazi jurist on trial for war crimes in 1961's Judgment at Nuremberg. Uncle Vanya was the last of Klemperer's 7 Broadway appearances, dating back to 1947, most of which cast him as a foreign of course (as in Cabaret, 1987-1988). British actor JAMES FOX, born William Fox in 1939, made his film debut using his birth name in 1950's The Miniver Story. That year, the 11-year-old Fox also appeared in The Magnet, which was considered one of the best of his early films. After changing his name to James as he began playing adult roles, Fox starred in such films as The Servant (1963), The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner (1963), King Rat (1965), Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines (1965), Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967), Passage to India (1984), The Russia House (1989), Patriot Games (1992), Remains of the Day (1993), Anna Karenina (1997), Rush Hour (1998) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005). Fox, who typically plays old-blood aristocrats later in his career, has also made a number of TV movies and miniseries. His first Broadway appearance came at age 14, as an ensemble singer in a revival of Oklahoma! (1953). BETTE HENRITZE, a veteran supporting actress, appeared in no fewer than 25 Broadway plays between 1958 (The Power and the Glory and 2000 (Waiting in the Wings). Surface lightly rubbed. Otherwise, fine condition.
