(BG-19) The Beard, Fillmore Auditorium *Mint Condition*



Every once in while, a poster comes up for sale that is of unparalleled cultural and historical insignificance. This is one of those cases. This piece represents a signpost of the radical cultural  and artistic evolution that was occurring in San Francisco in 1966. This scarce and historically important  poster is a lasting remnant from the Fillmore production of Michael McClure’s play “The Beard”. 

 Michael McClure was a poet, author and playwright and is considered one of the key members of the Beat and Hippie Movement.

The Beard was a groundbreaking avant-garde theatrical production, and not unlike  the music of the time, this play changed theater from that point forward . The play was a  imaginary pairing of legendary outlaw Billy The Kid (William H. Bonney) in eternity with film actress and sex symbol, Jean Harlow . The play was very risqué and controversial at the time and was repeatedly shut down for being obscene. A truly historic and beautiful piece that always enjoys top demand.
