Mr Gillette...Was Enthusiastically Appreciated -- June 22, 2014

The manager of the Willis Wood Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri reported that the week was split between William Gillette in Sherlock Holmes and San Toy, a musical set in China.  "Mr Gillette came the first three nights, to big business and was enthusiastically appreciated."  Gillette wrote the play and went on to play the part more than 1300 times.  When Knighthood Was in Flower was a play based on a popular novel set during the reign of Henry VIII.
