"Play It Again, Sam" is about a recently divorced film magazine writer, Allan Felix, who adores the star of classic American cinema, Humphrey Bogart. He tries to restart his romantic life and consults with the spirit of Bogart who begins to appear to him.
Allen premiered the play on Broadway on February 12, 1969, and it ran for 453 performances before closing on March 14, 1970.
A screen adaptation of the play, directed by Herbert Ross, was released in 1972.
Both the film and the play starred Woody Allen as the leading character.
