The Lostparadise


The Lostparadise
   Opening on 16 November 1891 at Proctor's 23rd Street Theatre, Henry C. DeMille's adaptation of a German play by Ludwig Fulda, directed and produced by Charles Frohman, ran for 138 performances. This drama of the conflict between Capital and Labor ends happily with the wealthy manufacturer's daughter choosing the factory superintendent (an engineer who sides with the striking workers) over the socially superior young man whom her father has made a partner and who alienates the workers. Finally, it is revealed that the superintendent actually invented the device that enabled the manufacturer to prosper!
