GE’s “Go Fly A Kite,” presented at an Electric Utility Executives Conference in 1966, is one of the biggest, best-known industrials. Broadway legends John Kander and Fred Ebb penned the songs (with help from Walter Marks), and the cast included Valerie Harper and future Tony winner Mary Louise Wilson, who here tangles with the Devil over the electrification of Hell.
