Series IX: Productions

The productions are alphabetical by title. Some productions have working titles different from their actual titles: see the title list below.

Within each production the material is in this order: correspondence (ordered chronologically by year if a lot); background information; worksheets; summaries; scripts (if more than one version, the scripts are lettered arbitrarily A-F or whatever. Some scripts are annotated.); legal (includes contracts, etc.); financial (includes box office receipts, budget information, etc. Information re royalties of many the productions are in the separate general file Financial of the collection); photographs (includes photos of rehearsals, live productions, some photos of Spewacks working with cast); playbills (in English and foreign); clippings (includes advertisements, reviews, etc.); other (song lyrics, production information,miscellaneous); printed material (includes scripts printed in magazines, scripts in book form). The scrapbooks, sheet music, and posters for each production are in separate general files, as are audio-visual materials (record albums, audio tapes, films).

If there is not much information on a production (usually because it was never produced) then it is in one of the Miscellaneous boxes at the end of the production file. Also please note that sometimes a production was produced at different times under different titles, but one title--the most famous one--is used as a collective heading. For example, Leave it to Me is the collective heading for information about Clear All Wires and Sweeney, two earlier non-musical versions of the same basic storyline, later rewritten with Cole Porter as the musical Leave it to Me.

The titles in bold are the actual titles or collective headings.
