| The last live theatrical production on TV.
I am a theater buff and a "Golden Age" TV fan.

This was LIVE theater. One shot, that was it, right or wrong. It was spectacular to say the least, and as far as I know, the last truly live theatrical production on TV.

If you have an opportunity to see a video of this production I urge you to do so. It has a lot to offer.
