Raoul Pene du Bois created the sets and costumes for the Irving Berlin musical that opened October 12, 1950 at the Imperial Theatre on Broadway and ran for 644 performances, until May 3, 1952. The musical starred Ethel Merman. It was directed by George Abbott and choreographed by Jerome Robbins. The show won four 1951 Tony Awards: Merman as Actress in a Musical, Irving Berlin's score, stage technician and Russell Nype for Featured Actor in a Musical. Pene du Bois was nominated for six Tony Awards and won in 1953 for his set designs for "Wonderful Town."  The drawling looks to be in excellent condition. It has not been examined out of the frame. The frame, likely the original, is in poor condition and should be replaced.
