About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1934. Vintage double weight, borderless photograph of actor Richard B. Harrison used to promote the touring production of the 1930 Pulitzer Prize winning play. With the stamp of photographer Alfredo Valente on the verso, and a mimeo snipe noting that the upcoming performance at Ohio University will be the 1460th since it debuted on Broadway four years earlier.

Based on the 1928 collection of pseudo African American folk tales "Ol' Man Adam an' His Chillun" by Roark Bradford, the play debuted February 26, 1930 at the Mansfield Theatre. It would run for 16 months and then tour over 200 cities in the United States and Canada with the original cast, including leading actor Richard B. Harrison. Harrison would die almost exactly a year after the performance advertised here, and just after he was featured on the cover of "TIME" magazine, tragically denied the opportunity to take advantage of the fame the role gave him.

7.5 x 9.5 inches. Very Good plus, with light edgewear and a short vertical crease to the bottom edge.
