J on This Day: 25 May 1921

25 MAY 1921: One hundred years ago today, J was still enjoying success in her big professional break: portraying Annabel (Dame Durden’s daughter) in a famous touring production of Robin Hood, Reginald De Koven’s comic opera masterpiece.

The cast and crew were in Richmond, Indiana, for three performances. The star attraction for those dates was a local soprano who, as far as I can tell, was given the role of Marian during the Richmond run only. According to an article in The Richmond Palladium and Sun-Telegram, after her stint with the company the local artiste was going to “remain with her family for several weeks.”

As for J, she continued in the role of Annabel.
