Description: PEN & INK ILLUSTRATION - Caricature by George Wachsteter (1911-2004), of Mary Martin in the Broadway production of 'Lute Song' at the Plymouth Theatre, Feb-June 1946, co-starring a then unknown Yul Brenner as Tsai-Yong. Promoted as a "Love Story with Music" based on the famous Chinese play "Pi-Pa-Ki" by Kao-Tong-Kia and Mao-Tseo, with book written by Sidney Howard and Will Erwin, music by Raymond Scott and lyrics by Bernard Hanighen. Because of Brynner's impressive and dynamic turn in 'Lute Song', it was Martin who recommended him to Rogers & Hammerstein, who cast him as the lead in 'The King and I'. On illustration board, for the New York Journal-American. 11" x 15". Notations at bottom, light soiling.
