WILLIAM ODEN WALLER (Studio of.) Manhattan Mary. Set design for the 1927 Broadway production featuring a jazz band amid a vibrant and highly detailed Art Deco background, with United Scenic Artists and "W. Oden Waller Studios" stamps on verso. Gouache over graphite on board. 283x483 mm; 11 1/4x19 inches, on 13x21-inch board.
The two-act Broadway musical comedy was a "roaring twenties" New York extravaganza at the Apollo Theater, replete with a jazz score by Ray Henderson, brightly colored sets by Waller, and a story line that regaled with a classic rags-to-riches tale. Produced by the prolific George White, it ran from September 26, 1927 to May 12, 1928 and starred Ed Wynn, Ona Munson, and White himself.
