“GODSPELL” EDGAR LANSBURY - 1971
I was in producer Edgar Lansbury’s office to discuss a new show he would be opening Off-Broadway when he took me to his window. “I'm doing a musical based on the life of Jesus, and I want the poster to look just like that ---” If you leaned out his window you would see a giant version of my Follies poster on the marquee of the the Wintergarden Theatre. I agreed to the job, figuring a musical about Jesus fit the Snowball in Hell category. Well, it ran 8 years and even became a movie. At first I jokingly called it “Son of Follies,” but now it is even more recognized than its up-town predecessor.
