NYPL Photo Archive: The Magic Show Part Two

Let’s do it again shall we folks?

I have to say I’m really loving this collection of photos. What strikes me the most about them is that their electricity and energy truly make you feel as if you’re in the Cort Theater’s front row circa 1974. As these pictures prove, the production itself was sparse and minimal.  It was the talent of Doug and the performers that really elevated the musical to become one of the biggest successes in Broadway history. 

Along for the ride were Dales Soules (Orange is the New Black) and David Ogden Stiers (MASH, Beauty and the Beast, etc) playing Cal and Feldman respectively.
