Notes: Program for the Broadway production of Abe Lincoln in Illinois, starring Raymond Massey (later replaced by Richard Gaines), which opened on 15 Oct. 1938 and ran for 472 performances. Published in weekly printings of The playbill for the Plymouth Theatre (cover title), with program headed e.g. "Beginning Monday evening, October 24, 1938 The Playwrights' Company ... present Raymond Massey in Abe Lincoln in Illinois ... ", with the date changed week by week; after Massey left the cast the heading changes to "The Playwrights' Company present Robert E. Sherwood's Pulitzer Prize play of 1939 Abe Lincoln in Illinois with Richard Gaines ..."
Changes in the cast list in successive printings indicate revisions to the text of the play, particularly in the first month of the run. Cf. the editions of the play published by Dramatists Play Service and C. Scribner's Sons, the DPS text being the earlier version.
