Trivia & History

The run at Maxine Elliott's Theatre consisted of 6 subscription performances for subscibers to ANTA's Experimental Theatre series. Tickets for these performers were available only by subscription. Due to public demand, an extra peformance was added for nonsubscibers. The schedule was an evening performance on Sunday, May 9, 1948, with additional subscriber performances on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights, and two performances on Sunday, May 16. The additional performance open to nonsubscribers was Saturday night.

The Maxine Elliott's Theatre was owned by the Columbia Broadcasting System. The Shuberts and ANTA had taken a sub-lease on the theatre, and that was over on May 17 so the run could not be extended at Maxine Elliott's.

 It then transferred to the Music Box for a longer run.
