There was on Off-Off Broadway revival of "Wish You Were Here' at Equity Library Theatre in 1987. "ELT" as it was known, was the ENCORES of its day, housed in a much smaller theatre, with an even smaller orchestra. It was popular for presenting some "first-time" New York revivals. The theatre was located at 103 and Riverside Drive.

Naturally, there was no swimming pool for this production, but I recall it being campy and fun. The more popular Rome songs were "Where Did The Night Go," "Tripping the Light Fantastic," "Don Jose (from far Rockaway), and the title song.

ELT was a big deal in its heyday. It was a great venue for performers as the shows attracted many agents and casting directors. Plus, most of the productions were reviewed by the NY Times.
