Broadway history[edit]

Hello I have been doing an I-search project and know all about the History of Broadway give me a ring 610-793-7982

1882 Birmingham, Alabama production[edit]

A November 14, 1882 production of this play in Birmingham, Alabama was the opening-night attraction at O'Brien's Opera House, a notable meeting-place run by one of Birmingham's most colorful characters who served as mayor and whose daughter became a prominent suffragist. I suspect this is too trivial for the article as it stands, but it may at some point belong on a list of notable performances or something like that. Take it or leave it. --Dystopos 05:28, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

I think this is notable, because there are very few if any other modern productions. However, you need references from a published source like a newspaper review or something we can cite to. The stuff about the mayor is not relevant to The Black Crook; just the date, city, venue and, if available, mentions of notable cast/crew members (i.e., bluelinked people). -- Ssilvers 05:50, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
The fact that the performance opened the theater is mentioned by Birmingham Public Library archivist James Baggett in his "Timepiece" column in the November 2007 issue of Birmingham magazine. (Vol. 47, No. 11, pp. 266-7). It sounds like you have a better idea of how to incorporate the information. If I learn more I'll try to find more immediate references to cite. --Dystopos 07:26, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, I added a mention. See if it is accurate. Do you know of any other more recent productions? Best regards, -- Ssilvers 15:28, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
I corrected the reference syntax, stopping short of applying one of the recommended citation templates. I have no knowledge about the play, only some interest in the history of Birmingham. --Dystopos 17:02, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

NYPL ELs[edit]

Someone added two new ELs from the NYPL. These seem to contain a lot of new info, so if anyone has any time, please look through them and add info from them to the article, moving the ELs to in-line cites. Happy editing! -- Ssilvers (talk) 23:36, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
