(MAILER, Norman and PLIMPTON, George)
Zelda, Scott and Ernest: An Overview
(NY), (92nd St. Y), (2002). The program and calendar for the January 2002 readings at the Unterberg Poetry Center of the Tisch Center for the Arts at the 92nd Street Y, laid into which is an overview of the scheduled performance of Zelda, Scott and Ernest: A Theatrical Adaptation, which is signed by Norman Mailer, George Plimpton, Norris Church Mailer and Tony Quinn. George Plimpton developed the project, based on Hemingway's and Fitzgerald's letters, and writer Terry Quinn helped and suggested adding Zelda Fitzgerald to the production. Mailer played Hemingway; Plimpton played Fitzgerald, and Norris Church Mailer, Mailer's sixth wife, played Zelda. The show had just one appearance at the "Y," followed by sporadic performances elsewhere for a time, including Vermont, Provincetown and Europe. An uncommon, if not unique artifact, of a rare Norman Mailer acting performance. Both the program and the broadsheet are fine. [#032802] SOLD
