Actually during "Hooray for What!" someone wrote to say that their mother had been one of the chorus girls in both that show, and in our season closer, "The Boys from Syracuse.". The gentleman had even scanned and sent photos of the original program, including pictures of his mom.
Now, with the addition of "Minnie's Boys" to the schedule, we got the following email:
"Minnie's Boys was the first Broadway show I ever saw! I have the original cast album, the CD, an original poster and a program autographed by all the leads including Shelly Winters and Louis J. Stadlen. If you'd like to display these materials at your performances, let me know... I'm a subscriber, so I can't wait to see you do this show...point of interest: the song "Empty" is on the cast album, but was actually cut from the show....
So, now you know that when you see vintage materials in our lobby, it sometimes comes from our audience members!
