Notes of an Innocent Bystander

The First Nights: Of which the week had none. The current season is one of the wackiest on record, crazier than some of the shows, but not much. There are 30 attractions on the Stem. At least 25 of them are getting handsome moola and 18 rate as smasheroos … When the season started it was impossible for a show to go hungry. Plays that would have expired with a showing got runs. The drain on pocket money caught up with them, however, and now the turkeys are shot down just like in peacetime.

From the St. Petersburg Times.
