This colourful, card theatre programme presents the hugely popular musical comedy, The Belle of New York, which ran for 674 performances in London. Significantly, this show made the lovely Edna May a star overnight.

Written by Hugh Morton with music composed by Gustave Kerker, it was an American musical which ran in Broadway for only 64 performances; however it later came to England and was the first American musical to become a huge success in the West End, London.

6-page tri-fold; approx 21cms x 9.5cms when closed.

Condition Code: 4-5:  Tiny nicks at top and bottom of spines; 2cm split at base of first spine. No tears, bends or folds; pages smooth. Thanks to the robust card construction this programme is in really very good condition for its 118 years.
