Playbill for The Hudson Theatre-"Toys In The Attic-1960-6" X 9"-32 pages-theatre program. This vintage Playbill features the 1960 production of "Toys In The Attic" starring Jason Robards and Maureen Stapleton.The original Broadway production was directed by Arthur Penn, who later recalled the rehearsal period was difficult. "Actors were fearful of Lillian. She was very judgmental." The playwright would sit in the darkened theater, coughing whenever she disapproved of something. Penn finally told her, "Go home and fire us all if you donít like it. But donít sit there coughing. It scares the hell of out of them." Not helping the situation was the fact "both Jason Robards and Maureen Stapleton were drinking considerably." Produced by Kermit Bloomgarden, the play opened at the Hudson Theatre on February 25, 1960 and closed on April 8, 1961 after 456 performances. The opening night cast included Robards as Julian, Stapleton as Carrie, Anne Revere as Anna, Rochelle Oliver as Lily, and Irene Worth as Albertina. The production included "French Lessons in Songs" and "Bernier Day" by Marc Blitzstein.The play won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play. It was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play but lost to The Miracle Worker by William Gibson. Jason Robards was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play but lost to Melvyn Douglas in The Best Man. Both Maureen Stapleton and Irene Worth were nominated for the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play but lost to Anne Bancroft in The Miracle Worker.The Playbill has been autographed on the front by Jason Robards and Maureen Stapleton........BOTH PLAYBILL AND AUTOGRAPHS ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION............
