Drawing by George Wachsteter (1911-2004) of Henry Wilcoxon as the Prosecutor in 1948 production of `The Vigil` at the Royale Theatre. Directed by Alexander Markey, designed by Nicholas Yellenti, the show ran May 21-29, 1948. Though a flop, the play is notable for featuring rising star Walter J. (Jack) Palance, who at the time was understudy to Brando during the run of `A Streetcar Named Desire`, before replacing Brando as Stanley Kowalski by 1949. On 14 1/4" x 19 1/4" illustration board, for the New York Herald Tribune. Includes clipping. 14" x 11 1/2". Some soiling.
