CITY CENTER ENCORES
70 Girls 70
A slight Kander & Ebb musical from 1971 (it ran 35 performances). To keep their old SRO building from being sold, the elderly residents of the Sussex Arms, with the encouragement of their ringleader, Ida, decide to raise the down payment for their building by shoplifting furs and fencing them for cash.
My image is based on Ida’s first appearance & big number occurring after a make-over at the local beauty salon and after having lifted her first chinchilla stole. Ida was played by Olympia Dukakis.
