About This Item

New York: Henry Miller's Theatre, 1929. Original flyer for the 1929 play "Journey's End," which premiered at Henry Miller's Theatre on Broadway on March 22, 1929 and closed on May 17, 1930, for a total of 485 performances.

The first US production of the play after its smash hit at at the Apollo Theatre in London, which starred a young Laurence Olivier and was directed by then-unknown director James Whale. It is widely considered to be one of the greatest plays ever written about World War I, following the plight of a British Army infantry company in 1918.

Whale accompanied the play to America for the production advertised here, which by late 1929 was being performed by 14 companies in English and 17 in other languages, and he would go on to direct the 1930 film adaptation starring Colin Clive, David Manners, and Ian Maclaren. His film would be the first of numerous adaptations, including: "The Other Side" (1931), "Aces High" (1976), and "Journey's End" (2017).

Whale would go on to even greater Hollywood fame, later directing "Frankenstein," "The Invisible Man," "The Bride of Frankenstein," and more, and was one of the first openly gay directors.

Two-color single leaf, folded once, 10 x 8 inches. Bright and Near Fine, with a few closed tears and edge creases.
