Adam West doing theater in 1972.

This is kind of a find! In the big pic, he's with William Schallert who played "Retired Man" on the Legends of the Superheroes debacle. It looks like Art Carney and Robert Cornwaite both who appeared in "Crooked Arrow" also appeared in plays at the same theater. Pretty cool.

Great pics. From the second photo I can recognize John Schuck, Avery Schreiber and either Herb Edelman or Richard Libertini left of Adam.

Just checked the website, that's Herb Edelman and behind Avery Schreiber should be Sam Waterston. Ezra Stone is the dapper man beside the policeman. The play is Volpone.

Yeah, great cast. The mature blonde beside Avery Schriber I believe is Marian Mercer, who was in this terrible syndicated series I used to watch called It's A Living. The other blonde looks a bit familiar. Looks a bit like Joyce Van Patten. Is West striking in that uniform or what?!! This pic is from an unrelated site, but was undoubtedly a publicity pic from this play.

Those images are wonderful! Always love seeing shots of Adam that I haven't come across before.

They're great. He was looking quite thin during that period. Here's on I saw on EBAY from 1972. Wow, he's Clint Eastwood thin there.

Bob!!!! What can I say? FANTASTIC! But it was Joyce Van Patten. I got that right. What a ridiculously wonderful cast.
