I saw the Kander & Ebb musical "70 Girsl 70" in London. Terrific show.
That picture of Gena Rowlands reminds me of her fine performance as GLORIA.

Lovely photo of Gena Rowlands and John Cassavetes, Joe. I don't think I've ever seen a photo of Cassevetes older, always picturing him in my mind as he was 'Guy Woodhouse.' :D

I'm glad you got to see that production, Vienna. The show was reworked for its West End run in 1991, and was more successful than the original Broadway production, which ran only about a month.

A cast album was recorded, though. Here they are in the studio:
