The Climax


The Climax
   Edward Locke's four-character melodrama about an opera singer and her Svengali-like throat doctor opened on 12 April 1909 at Weber's Theatre in New York and ran for 240 performances. Two of the four roles called for significant musical talent. The New York Times critic (18 April 1909) found the play to be "an interesting sentimental comedy in a fresh and charming vein."
