Vintage original 8 x 10” (20 x 25 cm.) black and white
double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Alexis Smith took
over Broadway in Harold Prince’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s musical
FOLLIES. It is the story of a reunion of the performers of Weismann’s Follies
at the theatre in which the shows were performed. The theatre is about to be torn down and the
group remembers the good times and the bad! Alexis was in good company with a
few of the stars of her Hollywood heyday including Gene Nelson, Yvonne De Carlo
and Fifi D’Orsay. The show ran for 522 performances between April 4, 1971 and
July 1, 1972. Though it won seven Tony
Awards, the show was a financial failure but has been revived numerous times
since. A nice image of the elegant
Alexis in performance. Attached paper
blurb on verso is dated 1972 and appeared for used during the shows run. ABOUT
