LAID IN THE BOOK IS A SMALL WHITE 3" X 5' CARD THAT HAS BEEN SIGNED BY ANGELA LANSBURY. Hit musical that ran for 1,508 perfromances and won Angela Lansbury her first Tony Award. Tonys were also won by Beatrice Arthur and Frankie Michaels along with 6 additional Tony nominations. Based of course on the novel by Patrick Dennis which in turn became a play that starred Rosalind Russell who later repeated her role for the movie version. Unfortunately when it came time to make a movie of the musical the producers passed over Angela Lansbury and instead cast a poorly suited and too old Lucille Ball who sank the film. Includes all the lyrics and 3 photos. The bright red dustjacket has some minor creasing and a few tears tot eh top edge, and light rubbing + the usual sun fading to the spine panel. The book itself is fine/vg.
