 Notes
Abstract: This study provides a review of the career of William A. Brady and a record of his activities as a producer of legitimate theatre in New York City. The purpose of the study was to establish the extent and significance of his contributions to American theatre. The initial phase of the study consists of a survey of major changes occurring in the American professional theatre between 1890 and 1940. The developments thus summarized make it possible to place Brady's life and career in their proper perspective. An account of Brady's achievements and ventures which the study contains judicates his involvement and influence in the artistic and financial aspects of the American theatre. Further, through the use of his personal notes, news clippings, and interviews with his contemporaries, the study provides some indications of the Brady personality which figured prominently in his work. It is evident from the information cited in this study that William A. Brady exemplified the stereotypical "businessman of the theatre." Details of his career indicate, however, Brady also brought a particularly innovative and artistically sound sense of showmanship to the business of producing and promoting popular entertainment on Broadway. The unusual quantity of Brady's production activity and his knowledge of several areas of the entertainment industry made him one of the most successful roducers the American stage has known.
