WONDERFUL TOWN: A New Musical Comedy, Music by Leonard Bernstein

New York: Random House, 1953. First Edition. Hardcover. First edition, first printing. The Tony Award-winning musical about two sisters who aspire to be a writer and actress, respectively, seeking success from their basement apartment in New York City's Greenwich Village. After a pre-Broadway try-out at the Forrest Theatre in Philadelphia, Wonderful Town premiered at the Winter Garden on February 25, 1953, starring Rosalind Russell, Edie Adams, and George Gaynes. It is a lighter piece than Bernstein's later works, West Side Story and Candide, but none of the songs have become as popular. Octavo: [vi], 173 p. with photographic illustrations from the 1953 Broadway production. Original gray cloth binding, with a photographic illustration inset on the front panel and decorative green and gilt stamping. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Fine / Fine. Item #76255
