Lot 840: Page removed from a playbill for the performance of Porgy and Bess at the Forrest Theatre in February 1936, 5.25 x 7.75, boldly signed in fountain pen by Gershwin. Two horizontal folds and a rusty paperclip impression the top edge, otherwise fine condition. The world premiere of Porgy and Bess came on September 30, 1935, with this cast listing page dating to just over five months later. A fantastic piece from early in the off-Broadway run of one of Gershwin's most famous productions.
