The Shannons of Broadway


The Shannons of Broadway
   This three-act comedy, written by actor James Gleason, and produced by Crosby Gaige and Earle Boothe, opened on 26 September 1927 for 288 performances at the Martin Beck Theatre. Gleason played Mickey Shannon opposite his real-life spouse, Lucille Webster, in a lighthearted story of a vaudeville team who take over management of a hotel, Swanzey's House, when stage bookings dry up. Complications over a mortgage and a proposed airport that might improve the hotel's sagging fortunes, drive the simple but pleasing action. The Gleasons starred in a 1929 motion picture version of The Shannons of Broadway.
