    The Mad Show Poster (1966). Years before "Mad TV" came this Broadway production, loaded with insane dialog and funny songs. Written by Larry Siegel and Stan Hart, the original cast included Linda Lavin, Jo Anne Worley, Paul Sand, and others. Later cast members included David Steinberg, Alan Sues, and Marcia Rodd. The play ran for two years, and a soundtrack has recently been reissued on CD. Here's an original 14" x 22" poster on stiff cardboard, printed in red and black on white, with a superb portrait of Alfred E. Neuman saying "Ecch!", listing the New Theater on E. 54th Street address. We doubt many of these have survived, especially in this nice condition. A slight bend at the top of the poster is the the only real flaw, and this will be rendered unnoticable by framing. A wild item, indeed! Remember to "throw away that truss," and bid!
