Three Tall Women

New York: Dutton, (1995).


Hardcover. First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by Albee to Marian Seldes, who played "B", one of the three tall women in the title on Broadway, and to her husband, the author and director Garson Kanin: "For my Marian and my Gar - who fill my life, Edward. 1995." Seldes is listed in the book in the original Broadway cast. Laid in are two color snapshots of a marquee of a theater, possibly in Spain, where the play was being performed with a Spanish-speaking cast. Marian Seldes won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in 1967 for her performance in Albee's *A Delicate Balance*, as well as receiving four more nominations. In 2010 she won a Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. A beautiful copy of this Pulitzer Prize-winning play - about the various stages of a woman's life with an unsurpassed theatrical association.
