April was surely the month theatre-goers associate most with MAE WEST on Broadway. Here's a sassy snippet from the entertainment editors of Playbill Magazine, David Gewirtzman, Anne Bradley, and Ernio Hernandez .
• • From Playbill's popular feature "Today In Theatre History: APRIL 26" • •
• • Playbill writes: 1926 "Sex." It's a comedy. Mae West plays a Canadian woman with no time for those mountees; it's the British navy for her. It runs through one season, but the following it is raided as immoral. The cast is arrested and Mae West, who also co-produced, is sentenced to 10 days in jail and is fined $500. A well-received off-off-Broadway revival in 2000 proved that the show still had laughs and a unique social point of view.
