Rue collected Playbills, and not just ones from Broadway and Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway Shows she attended; Rue collected Playbills from famous shows or from runs starring famous players. Some of the Playbills in her collection even pre-date her own birth! This lot includes eight Playbills from Rue’s collection – one from each decade of Rue’s life, the 1930s thru the 2000′s. Some of the shows are very well known, but some are not. Look closely at the people on the covers, do you recognize anyone? Kitty Carlisle, Ethel Merman, Audrey Hepburn, Richard Burton, Lauren Bacall, Stockard Channing, or those “kids” from Rent, perhaps? Keep in mind, not only are these Playbills collector’s items in and of themselves, but the whole collection was owned by Rue McClanahan which gives the pieces a double provenance. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
