A CELEBRATION OF THE WOODSTOCK PLAYHOUSE & AMERICAN THEATRE HISTORY
In 1941, Hirschfeld visited the three year old Woodstock Playhouse to create a memorable work. In the center is Sally Rand, famous for her nearly nude fan and bubble dances, rehearsing Somerset Maughamís Rain, his South Seas drama about prostitute Sadie Thompson, and the missionary who tries to reform her. Her director is Playhouse founder Robert Elwyn, and her cast included many of the types of actors who made the Playhouse productions so memorable. Thereís Ivan Triesulat, a German actor who made his Broadway debut in John Gielgudís Hamlet in 1936 and would later go to Hollywood as a character actor who appeared in many films and on television; Don McHenry, a Broadway veteran who was a member of the original companies of Destry Rides Again and Fanny,; Houston Richards, who was a regular in the original Cole Porter productions of Anything Goes, Red Hot and Blue, and Letís Face It; and Duane McKinney who only made one Broadway appearance, but would later leave his mark as an art director for live theater on TV.
Hirschfeldís drawing of the Playhouse rehearsal provides a backstage look of not only the production, but of Playhouse history. Now with a limited edition print authorized by the Al Hirschfeld Foundation, audiences can own their own piece of this history. In a strictly limited edition of only 100 impressions, each print is numbered, stamped with the authorized Al Hirschfeld Foundation seal, and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity issued by the Foundation. A significant portion of each sale goes to support the Woodstock Playhouse.
Al Hirschfeld understood that great theater doesnít only happen on Broadway. The Al Hirschfeld Foundation is happy to partner with the Woodstock Playhouse to celebrate the Playhouseís contribution to the American Theater. We feel that the historic legacy of the Playhouse is remarkable, and the performances seen on its stage today history in the making. Our mission is to promote interest in the theater and dramatic arts by supporting institutions like the Woodstock Playhouse, and we hope you will too. For more information about purchasing this print, speak to our concessions or company manager. A significant portion of the proceeds goes directly to the Woodstock Playhouse.

NOTES FROM OUR SUMMER THEATRE PATRONS...
Of 'West Side Story': "Loved the production! Just as fresh and stunning as always.... took me back to 1958... saw an early cast that summer in NYC...went right to the top of my list as one of the greatest musicals forever... I wept yesterday... all that energy and talent it takes to bring something so stunning and amazing, emotionally wrenching yet!!!!!"
Of 'Jesus Christ Superstar': "Amazing show! We saw it tonight...I can honestly say this is a show not to be missed. From concept to lighting, to choreography, dancers, ensemble, leads, to pit, vocal strength, balance, set, simply amazing!"
Of 'Spamalot': "I thoroughly enjoyed Spamalot! Had a smile on my face from beginning to end! I don't know if you are at all familiar with the late (and great) Madeline Kahn who was a comedienne, actress and singer. I could swear you (Lady of the Lake) were "channeling" a young, up-and-coming Madeline! My best to you and the wonderful cast of Spamalot. May all your dreams be fulfilled!"
