Legendary American theatrical producer (1869–1932) whose annual ‘Follies’ introduced such major stars as Fanny Brice and Will Rogers. ALS in pencil signed vertically “Flo,” one page, 7 x 10.25, no date. Letter to his partner Charles Dillingham, asking him to work in the best interest of the Century Theatre and not to steal chorus girls from the Follies, in part: “I know you want to get the best you can but we should both do our best for Century. I am taking all the best girls from the Follies. Don’t you grab them.” Double-matted and framed with an image of Ziegfeld to an overall size of 19.25 x 16.5. In fine condition, with a few unobtrusive spots of foxing. Initially a theater critic for the NY Evening Post, Dillingham went on to become one of the leading 20th century theatrical producers in New York City, promoting the careers of composers Jerome Kern and Irving Berlin, while also working with the dance team of Fred and Adele Astaire. Fantastic content concerning Ziegfeld’s iconic chorus girls. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
