This Day in Ann Dvorak History: Ann Signs on as “The Respectful Prostitute”
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 224
On August 12, 1948, the New York Times reported that Ann Dvorak was sent an official contract to sign on for the lead role in the Broadway production of Jean Paul Sartre’s The Respectful Prostitute. Ann would be replacing Meg Mundy in the lead role and was scheduled to start on September 1st. Ann’s run at the Cort Theater would last a few months and was an overall success. Unfortunately, this first go at Broadway would end up being her last (for reasons to be explored in a certain book).
