VARIETY 83 GREETINGS TO FRIENDS IN AND OUT OF VAUDEVILLE Twenty years behind the scenes—now in front of the house. A modest stride from the variety field to the dramatic firmament. Still have an ardent feeling for all vaudevillians, old and new, and will be pleased to see the boys whenever they're in the greatest town on the circuit—Phila- delphia. Those were happy days—gone but not forgot- ten. Remember Boston at the big house? Kos- ter & Bial's in the village of Manhattan? The biggest of them all, Keith's in Philadelphia? The large and successful openings of the finest houses? And now the launching of the Orpheum Dramatic Stock Company in Philadelphia. Never had a failure—and there's none in sight.
