  • Goodbye Charlie, a play by George Axelrod, starred Lauren Bacall alongside Sydney Chapman, and ran at the Lyceum Theater in New York from 1959 to 1960. It was Ms Bacall's first starring role on Broadway, in which she played a philandering Hollywood writer who dies and is reincarnated as a woman.
