Poster and Program for the N.Y.T.E. Performance of the Beard
New York: New York Theater Ensemble, . Poster and program both 8 1'2 x 11", each offset printed.
Two ephemeral items related to this 1976 East Village production of The Beard, here directed by Lucille Talayco with the New York Theater Ensemble at 62 East 4th street. The NYTE also produced Wayne County's infamous play World: Birth of the Nation. This production had Bob Balhatcht playing Billy the Kid, who later achieved notoriety as a film actor for his roles in Escape from Alcatraz and other films.
Ephemera from the ensemble is scarce, and this is an interesting tie between the beat era of McClure and the nascent East Village punk and performance scene in the 1970's.
Each folded once, but clean and very good. Item #30710
