Poster: "Miss Nefertiti Regrets" (1965)

Poster

Collage poster promoting the 1965 production of "Miss Nefertiti Regrets." The poster artist was Ken Burgess and the collage features images of Egyptian figures in and around a triangle, presumably representing a pyramid. Letters were cut out of what appears to be construction paper and glued to the cardboard. The poster has sustained damage to the sides and corners.

"Miss Nefertiti Regrets by Tom Eyen was produced at La MaMa in 1965 and might be best remembered for having featured Bette Midler in what appears to have been her New York stage debut: she was initially cast as “Naomi and Assorted Virgins” in the 1965 La MaMa production. But soon after the show opened, Eyen re-cast her as Nefertiti. One reviewer called the production, a musical, “wild,” “swinging,” and “hilarious”: a “pure camp” take on “Queen Nefertiti’s true love for both Julius Caesar and Marc Antony.”
