These include: Daly’s Empire, Howard Athenaeum (boy, did they ever go downhill!), Colony, Globe, Gaiety, Irving Place, Casino, Strand, Newark, Mutual Lyric, Follies, Apollo, and National Winter Garden. Includes an Autographed Letter, photo, and program for Ann Corio in the 1965 show "This Was Burlesque", a program for the Burlesque Club’s 1923 revue at the Columbia Theatre, and a mini-poster for Bert Smith’s "Varieties of 1936."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
