The olden days
Posted by: aleck 03:41 pm EST 11/25/23

I happened across a NYTimes ABC list for Dec. 20, 1956. Here were some of the Broadway offerings:
Rosalind Russel in Wonderful Town
Judy Holliday i Bells Are Ringing
Candide
Damn Yankees
Shelly Winters in Girls of Summer
Ethel Merman in Happy Hunting
Paul Muni in Inherit the Wind
Judy Garland at the Palace
Li'L Abner
Frederick March & Florence Eldridge in Long Day's Journey
Charles Laughton & Glynis Johns in Major Barbara
Ruth Gordon in The Matchmaker
Edward G. Robinson in Middle of the Night
Sammy Davis Jr in Mr. Wonderful
Rex Harrison & Julie Andrews in My Fair Lady
New Faces of '56
No Time for Sergeants
Ruth Draper
Sioban McKenna in Saint Joan
Margaret Leighton in Separate Tables
Maurice Evans in The Apple Cart
Joseph Schildkraut in Diary of Anne Frank
Walter Pidgeon in the Happiest Millionaire
Robert Weede in Most Happy Fella

I guess that's why they refer to this era as a "Golden Age." But sixty years from now when someone look at our current offerings, will they consider this a "Golden Age" as well -- as compared to the offerings in the future?
