London. The National Theatre (Olivier Theatre). 1983.
Twenty-eight page playbill, 10 x 6 inches, announcing "Premiere: A Musical Drama" detailing the career of Jean Seberg opening 1 December 1983 at the Olivier Theatre, directed by Peter Hall with music composed by Marvin Hamlish. The playbill includes an illustrated essay on Seberg, focusing on a career which began as St. Joan in the Otto Preminger film, continuing through New Wave productions, her support for the Black Panthers, retaliation by the FBI, and her death, age 40, in Paris. Also included is the four page playbill for the production offered gratis to theatre-goers. The "musical drama," championed by some, fared poorly and closed after a disappointing run. Uncommon National Theatre playbill in good clean condition. Item #53365
