The Theater: Best Bets on Broadway, Jan. 27, 1947

Broadway currently houses almost a record number of popular old residents—Life with Father, Oklahoma!, The Voice of the Turtle, Harvey. Newer favorites:

Street Scene. Turned into a Kurt Weill folk opera, Elmer Rice's famous tenement tragedy remains lively theater (TIME, Jan. 20).

Pinion's Rainbow. Generally bright musical blend of fantasy and satire, in which leprechauns turn human and bigoted Southern Senators turn black (TIME, Jan. 20).

Androcles and the Lion. High-spirited revival of Shaw's satiric romp among fiery Christians and flabby Romans (TIME, Dec. 30).

Joan of Lorraine. A radiant and appealing Ingrid Bergman in Maxwell Anderson's play-within-a-play about Joan of Arc (TIME, Dec. 2).
