Coconut Grove Playhouse and the Miami Theater group scrapbooks - 1955-1990
- 1955-1990 (predominant: (bulk 1955-1965))
Newspaper clippings, playbills, correspondence and art show programs document the history of the Coconut Grove Playhouse from its purchase by George Engle in 1955 until 1990. Most of the material covers the ten years of Engle's ownership.
Included in the correspondence is an ALS from Victor Borge and two TLS from Lyndon Johnson, then Democratic Leader for the Senate.
In 1959 in connection with the newly formed Miami Theater Group, Dorothy (Mrs. George) Engle produced Claire Booth Luce's play The Women. As the cast was drawn entirely from local well-known women, it received wide publicity, collected here in a second scrapbook.
Engle, Dorothy J.
