[Mini-archive of Photos & Printed Items re: the First US Broadway Production of:] THE PERSECUTION AND ASSASSINATION OF MARAT AS PERFORMED BY THE INMATES OF THE ASYLUM OF CHARENTON UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE MARQUIS DE SADE
by Weiss, Peter [sourcework]
[New York], 1965. Eleven 8 x 10" b&w production photographs, two quarto mimeographed sheets, and printed program and issue of PLAYBILL. Generally very good to fine (see below). A good selection of items associated with the first Broadway run of Weiss's landmark play (as translated by Geoffrey Skelton and Adrian Mitchell). Peter Brook directed the production, which ran from 21 Dec 1965 until 30 April 1966 (148 total performances) at the Martin Beck Theatre. The lot includes nine photographs identifiable as relating to the Broadway production (most bearing the stamp on the verso of noted stage photographer, Morris Newcombe), the majority with mimeo squibs on versos (though most detached), with identifying annotations as to performers in the scenes. Several bear stamps on the versos or on the squibs indicating that they were sent for the use of THEATRE WORLD. Three additional photographs appear to be stills from the 1967 Peter Brook film of the play. The cast included Glenda Jackson, Ian Richardson, Patrick Magee, et al. Also present are two mimeo press releases, one of which accompanied complimentary "second night" tickets. Finally, also present is the pp. leaflet program, and the relevant issue of PLAYBILL. The production garnered several important wins on the occasion of the 1966 Tony Awards.
