A Connecticut Yankee circa 1943
A jive-talk, wartime update of the 1927 classic. Music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Lorenz Hart. Book by Herbert Fields and staged by John C. Wilson. Featuring dancer Vera-Ellen. The show was the last by Lorenz Hart, who was ejected for being drunk and disorderly from the opening night performance, dying a few weeks later from pneumonia. The production reprised the old standards, "My Heart Stood Still" and "Thou Swell", and introduced a new show-stopping number, "To Keep My Love Alive", which was added for Vivienne Segal, fresh from her Broadway run in the hit, Pal Joey.

Foolish Notion February 1945
A comedy written by Philip Barry, directed by John C. Wilson and starring Tallulah Bankhead. The story follows a woman who has lost her husband (Henry Hull) in the war, and so makes plans to marry her husband's best friend (Donald Cook). When the husband surprisingly reappears, all is turned upside-down and the woman must choose between the two men. The play was staged as a combination of reality and the fantasy imaginings of all of the possible outcomes, leaning heavily on the production design and lighting by Jo Mielziner.
