Original script for the 1974 play. Based on the 1962 short story by Singer, and adapted by him and playwright Leah Napolin for the stage, the play premiered October 25, 1975 at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre and ran for a total of 223 performances. Tovah Feldshuh was nominated for a Tony for her portrayal of the title role.Faithful to the original story, the play follows a young women who begins living as a man named Anshel after her father dies in order to continue studying the Torah in defiance of Jewish tradition. There's a strong theme of transgenderism in the play and story, as the main character describes himself as "neither one sex nor the other" and having "the soul of a man in the body of a woman." Even after being discovered, Yentl chooses to continue to live as Anshel rather than return to life as a woman. This contrasts strongly with the text of the better known Barbara Streisand film, despised by Singer, where the transgender aspect of the narrative is replaced by a heteronormative romance and musical numbers.Blue studio wrappers. Title page present, dated 1974, with credits for novelist Singer and playwright Napolin. 155 leaves, mimeograph. Pages Very Good plus, wrapper Very Good bound with two gold brads.
