New York: Playwright’s Workshop, 1968. Item #5282
Offset. 16 3/8 x 21 3/4 in. Near-fine.
Poster for the second run of Jackie Curtis’ Glamour, Glory and Gold. Curtis wrote the play when she was 20 and rising in the Factory scene; the first run in 1967 was an underground hit, with Curtis and co-star Candy Darling’s performances both praised. In the second run in 1968, Robert De Niro was cast for a
supporting role, for which he received his first press attention. A De Niro biographer reports that at the audition, De Niro offered up his mom’s place to print posters and playbills, evidence of an alluring provenance for this poster.
A poster from the intersection of the Factory and underground theater scene that showcases two early transgender icons.
