About the Book

On the cover of this self-published 800-page book is this description of the contents: “Gives a complete record of all entertainment and, substantially, the cast over every play presented in Chicago, on its first production in the city, from the beginning of theatricals in 1834 down to the last before the fire of 1871.” This description of the author is also on the cover: “Fifty years in theatricals as actor, author, manager and producer. Operator of touring attractions from coast to coast and many resident stock companies. Author of Drama Cyclopedia.”

The author states in the Preface that the records here include not just, “…theatres proper, but halls where any form of entertainment was given and tents, where circus performances took place.” He says that early amusements usually originated in hotel dining rooms and graduated to halls.
