This is a rare advertising handbill (flyer) promoting the out-of-town tryout of the obscure ARTHUR LAURENTS play "HEARTSONG" at the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia beginning March 17th, 1947. (The production opened February 27th, 1947 at the Shubert Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut and closed March 29th, 1947 in Philadelphia, cancelling the scheduled Broadway opening.) ..... "HEARTSONG" would have been Arthur Laurents' second Broadway play, had it arrived in New York. From the beginning the production had problems, including the original leading lady, NANCY COLEMAN, quitting after only three days of rehearsal, the original leading man being replaced and then his replacement, LLOYD BRIDGES quitting, the original director being fired, and the script receiving extensive rewrites. When the show finally opened in Philadelphia, it was a flop and would intentionally be left out of all of Arthur Laurents' future bios. Laurents' future career did not suffer however, as he went on to write the libretto for such hit shows as Gypsy and West Side Story ..... The play starred LLOYD BRIDGES (replaced in Philadelphia by BARRY NELSON), KAY STEWART (replaced in Philadelphia by PHYLLIS THAXTER), SHIRLEY BOOTH, JAY FASSETT and SUSAN DOUGLAS ..... CREDITS: Book by ARTHUR LAURENTS ("West Side Story", "The Time of the Cuckoo", "Gypsy", "Anyone Can Whistle", "Do I Hear a Waltz?", "Nick amp; Nora"); Sets designed by STEWART CHANEY; Directed by PHYLLIS LOUGHTON (replaced in Philadelphia by MELCHOR G. FERRER); Produced by IRENE M. SELZNICK ..... DETAILS: Advertising handbills (heralds) were distributed or inserted into the playbills of other productions to help generate ticket sales for upcoming shows and events. This single page, two-sided handbill measures 6" X 9" inches and includes production credits on the front and photos of the leading actors and promotional text on the backside ..... CONDITION: With the exception of light creasing along the top edge, this rare handbill is i
