Wichita, Kansas. The New Crawford Theatre, 12-13- 1913.
Theatre program, staple bound, 8 x 3 ½ inches, eight pages, providing cast information for H. H. Frazee’s touring Broadway drama "Fine Feathers," playing a one-night stand at the New Crawford Theatre in Wichita, Kansas with Lillian Rhodes a featured player. Good clean condition, with advertising (three panels per page) for local businesses. Harry Frazee, whose name in the program appears in bold atop the play’s title, was a producer and theatrical agent who went on to own Major League baseball’s Boston Red Sox (1916 to 1923), famously selling the teams’ Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees in 1919. He enlisted playwright Eugene Walter to restructure a scenario written by Walter Hackett and the drama "Fine Feathers" was the eventual result. A highly uncommon piece of theatrical ephemera with a Red Sox related tie-in. Item #54114
