East Hampton, New York: [circa 1971].

Price: $950.00

Unbound. Broadsides. Illustrated by Isadore Seltzer. Measuring 11" x 17" and 13" x 19.75". Overall very good with some toning, pins holes at the corners, and light edge wear; one poster with a couple of water spots. Eight posters for performances at the Old Post Office Theatre on Newtown Lane in East Hampton, New York, which was co-owned by photographer Ken Robbins who used the upstairs as his first dark room. The theatre specialized in avant-garde plays by the likes of Harold Pinter, Terrance McNally, Sam Shepard, Eugene Ionesco, Joe Orton, Rochelle Owens, Boris Vian, Leonard Melfi, and others. Drama apparently did not pay the bills so the theatre put the kibosh on live performance after just two seasons in favor of art house films. It was likely that few of these posters were made for each performances and even less have survived.
