[a very nice copy, tight and clean with just a touch of wear at the spine ends; jacket a little rubbed on the front panel, very light wear to extremities, tiny closed tear at upper left of front panel]. (B&W photographs) One of the great musicals of the 1960s, adapted from Federico Fellini's film "Nights of Cabiria." It was a triumph for choreographer Bob Fosse on the stage, but a little less so in his 1969 screen adaptation (which substituted Shirley MacLaine for Gwen Verdon). [NOTE: Although there is no "first printing" or "first edition" statement in this copy of the book, I believe it to be such, and to therefore constitute an exception to the usual Random House practice for their published plays. The printed price ($3.95) is present on the front jacket flap, along with the printing code 10/66 at the bottom corner of the flap. In addition, this was part of a collection in which nearly all the published plays were review copies, with publisher's slips to document the fact; although there is no slip present in this copy, I believe it to also be a review copy. If someone can show me evidence of a copy that states "first printing," however, I will happily stand corrected.]
