The Chorus lady


The Chorus lady
   The slight comedy by James Forbes originally opened on 13 June 1904 as vaudeville sketch material. Enlarged to a two-act play, it opened on 1 September 1906 at the Savoy Theatre and moved to London in April 1909. Rose Stahl played the leading role in all three venues. The play appealed to audiences for the glimpses it afforded of backstage life and stage folks' lingo.
