Grayson Hall in WHAT EVERY WOMAN KNOWS, 1975

In 1975, Grayson Hall appeared in a revival of J. M. Barrie's 1908 four-act play, WHAT EVERY WOMAN KNOWS. There's not much about the play circulating online, save for the essential nuts and bolts: According to the Internet Off-Broadway Database, the show ran for 71 performances, opening May 28 and closing the following month on July 27 in 1975. The show was staged at the Roundabout Stage I in New York City.

R.J. Jamison's biography of Hall, A HARD ACT TO FOLLOW, includes a number of reviews of the play (most of them positive) but history suggests the production did little to distinguish itself. Above is a June 1, 1975, item promoting the event from a New York newspaper, showing cast members Hall, Fran Bill and Susan Tabor in costume.
