George White's "Scandals" - Apollo Theatre
46275_10151256646626913_695937308_n.jpg

This was the 8th Annual production of George White's "Scandals" and also the longest running, opening June 14, 1926 and not closing until June 18, 1927 at the Apollo Theatre. There is some confusion in the cast list regarding various individuals. They are listed as twins and stars in the opening page and are listed together in a few seasons. However, there is also a Miss Hastings listed at least once but does not indicate if she is one of the twins, and a Barbara Hastings is also listed, but again no reference if she is one of the twins. There is also a listing for a Miss Bowman at one point, but does not indicate if she is Marie Bowman or Edna Bowman as listed elsewhere in the program. There is also a Miss J. Cullen and Miss G. Cullen which may be the same person. There were also several typographical errors which could be worked out.
