Hugh Hefner may not be able to recapture his glory days, but his magazine, Playboy, is going back in time for its October issue.
With NBC's "The Playboy Club" set to debut Sept. 19, the newest issue of the magazine that led to both the clubs and the show will have a 1961-theme and cost just 60 cents, the newsstand price in that year.
Laura Benanti, an actress on the show, is featured on the cover of the magazine, which is inspired by Playboy's April 1963 cover, which featured original Playboy-club employee Bunny Kelly.
Playboy Clubs date back to 1960, when the first one opened in Chicago. All of the clubs wer shuttered by 1991, but one reopened in Las Vegas in 2006, prompting openings in London, Cancun and Macao.
Playboy as a company has been in poor financial shape, prompting Hefner to take it private in January.
Though this would appear to hurt rather than help finances, Hefner has said he expects to make up for any decline in newsstand profit with advertisements.
