Members of the Princeton Triangle Club posed for this kickline photo in 1933, before the December debut of “Fiesta” at McCarter Theater. Set in 1890s Texas, the romance was headlined by William Harrison ’35 as the heroine, Virginia, and George Swift ’34 as her rancher suitor, Richard. Novelist Louis Bromfield, reviewing the show for The Daily Princetonian, said it reached its pinnacle “when, toward the end of the evening, it goes haywire and becomes delightful nonsense.”
Bromfield’s take seems apt for most Triangle productions. This year’s cast will aim for more delightful nonsense with “Zero Gravitas,” a space-themed musical romp coming to McCarter Nov. 15, 16, and 17.
The photograph of “Fiesta” is courtesy of Donald Marsden ’64’s book The Long Kickline: A History of the Princeton Triangle Club. View more Triangle photos in PAW’s slide show of past kicklines.
