Table of Contents

Our playbill for "Crime" by Samuel Shipman and John B. Hymer, performed at the Times Square Theatre was dated "Thurs. June 16th" by the young woman who saw the show and kept it. She also marked that she had seen the show "with Mother". It seems that the below listed company started the production at the Eltinge Theatre in February and moved to the Times Square at an unknown date, and after closing on Broadway the entire production continued on to Chicago and other cities.
