NYC – Hirchfeld on 5th avenue

I visited this Hirchfeld exhibit while on 5th Avenue


Where: Henri Bendel, 712 Fifth Avenue at 56th Street

When: The Hirschfeld Spectacular will be on display throughout the Henri Bendel flagship store until January 2, 2014.

Why: Until January 2, 2014, when you collect a Hirschfeld Spectacular Poster at the Henri Bendel flagship store, 20% of your purchase will support The Actors Fund’s Al Hirschfeld Free Clinic and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Broadway actors abound: Mary MartinYul BrynnerAlfred Drake—AngelaChita, andTommy Tune—and the casts of “Phantom,” “The Producers,” “Hairspray,” and “Les Mis.” The many stars of the Silver Screen include Laurel & HardyJudy Garland in “The Wizard Of Oz,” and Gable and Leigh in “Gone With The Wind.” hirschfeld-spectacular-image426 (1)There’s Katharine HepburnLiz TaylorCary Grant, and Gene KellyFred Astaire twirls Ginger Rogers, and Julie Andrews flies over London as Mary Poppins. Television: from “I Love Lucy” to I love “The Golden Girls”—andGrouchoGleason & CarneyStiller & Meara. Once again Shatner and Nimoy are taking off in “Star Trek,” and The Beatles are changing the world on Ed Sullivan. Music? Music: Duke EllingtonBillie HolidayEllaLenaElvis, and FrankMick, and KeithMadonnaJerry GarciaWynton Marsalis. Bendel even has Beethoven—and, of course, Hirschfeld’s good friendHoudini, and Sherlock Holmes! The Henri Bendel Hirschfeld Spectacular has hundreds more. And every picture is worth a thousand words.

  1. Wally forwarded this to Pat and me. Enjoyed the material and photos. Glad to see that you are both healthy and fit enough to enjoy all that your city appears to offer. Our best to Kate and we wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy and healthy New Year. Dick


    • Great to hear from you. We are enjoying the city and trying to keep busy – not too difficult with two teen grandsons. Hope you and Pat are fine and enjoying the holidays with your family.
