About this Item

Tavel was an Obie winning playwright probably best known for his work with Jack Smith and Andy Warhol. He worked on Smith's Flaming Creatures and wrote the screenplays for Warhol's Chelsea Girls, Vinyl, and Poor Little Rich Girl (among others), in addition to acting in several of Warhol's films. Tavel also founded the Theatre of the Ridiculous known for it's surreal stage settings and props, cross-dressing actors, and emphasis on material that was intentionally shocking and provocative. My Foetus Lived on Amboy Street is about an embryo struggling to come to birth in Brooklyn, and the bizarre and striking poster imagery features the Brooklyn Bridge, a dangling spider, and Tarzan's son swinging on a vine. Clean pin holes to the corners, minute tear, no paper loss, solid very good plus to near fine (16" x 22"). An exceedingly scarce poster with a quirky and sensational graphic design.
