Bijou Opera House

( AKA: Brighton Theatre, Thomas' Opera House, St. James Opera House, Broadway Theatre,
Wood's Broadway Theatre, Wood's Opera House, Broadway Opera House, and Bijou Theatre)

- 1239 Broadway / New York -

From a 1881 fire inspection report - the earliest description of the original theatre I could find:

"The theatre was entered by the stage door, which is in Sixth-ave, under an oyster place.
A long passageway leads to the cellar of the house, which is fitted up as dressing rooms.
The cellar was formerly used as a bowling alley. The part under the auditorium is divided
into a number of small rooms for the players, and under the stage is a vacant space.

Chief Gicquel asked the manager, John A. McCaull, if he thought the props that held up the
stage were sufficient to support a very great weight. McCaull said that there was never a
very great weight on the stage, and he thought the beams were amply sufficient for the purpose.
The timbers supporting the stage, the manager said, ran from wall to wall, and were propped up
in many places between the walls by posts. The same was true of the floor of the auditorium.

When the stage was examined it was found to be one of the smallest in the city, and every inch of
ground has to be used to advantage. There are no rigging lofts, as the top of the theatre is
directly under the roof of the building. The building is done on the right-hand side of the stage,
where a number of ropes are used to adjust the curtains and scenery. The proscenium frame is twenty
feet high and twenty-four feet wide, and on each side of it is a space about five feet in width.
Above the stage is a covered well-hole, 15 feet by 12 feet, which can be opened by ropes on each
side of the stage. The manager explained that if a fire should occur at any time on the stage the hole
could be opened and the flames would be carried away from the auditorium by the draft. There are two
similar openings in the ceiling of the auditorium which measure 18 feet by 22 feet. There is no space
between the stage and the roof through which fire could be conducted to the auditorium, as there is in
most theatres. Chief Gicquel watched closely the scene shifters after the curtain fell on the first act.
They appeared to work cautiously around the lights and received no reproof from the chief. On the stage
are several fire-extinguishers, axes and hooks to be used in case of an emergency.

There are really no workshops connected with the theatre, as there is no room for them. When the carpenter
has any work to do he does it on the stage, and the same is true of the painters.

The arrangement for dismissing the people received no criticism from the chief, although he suggested some
improvements which he will recommend in his report. From the top gallery, which seats 211 persons, there
are four exits. Two stairways lead to the lobby of the theatre, and a third from reception room adjoining
the balcony leads to Broadway. There is also a window at the back of the balcony which is about five feet
bove the roof of the extension. There is also another window in the reception room adjoining the balcony
which could be ussed for the same purpose. In the parquette are seats for 402 persons. There are three aisles
which to two exits. Mr. McCaull declared that his theatre was the safest in the city because it was so small.
He said there was not accomodation for a large audience, and hence even in the case of a great panic the
theatre could easily be emptied in a few minutes."





This book excerpt is taken from Our Theatres To-day and Yesterday
the following clippings are from my own research:

"The Brighton Theatre, which opened August 26, 1878, was located at 1239 Broadway, in a building formerly known as John Morrisey's saloon.
At first it was devoted to varied shows under the management of J.W. Warren and John Farrington. The house was closed in a few weeks and opened again
December 31 as the Thomas Opera House In January, 1879, its name was changed to the St. James Opera House. It was next called the Wood's Broadway Theatre,
George Woods manager (September 1879). November 10, it was rechristened the Broadway Opera House. March 31, 1889, the house opened with John A. McCaull and
Charles E. Ford as managers after it had been remodeled and renemed the Bijou Opera House. Owing to its smallness it was never very popular and in the
summer of 1883 it was torn down. In December of the same year a modern house was erected on the property, which was christened the Bijou Theatre, a name it
bears to-day. The opening performance was an adaption by Max Freeman of "Orpheus and Eyrydice," R.E.J. Miles and W.B. Barton managers. In 1887 Henry E. Dixey
became half partner with Miles and Barton. June 11, 1888, J.W. Rosenquest took a hand in its management. December 1, 1894, Rosenquest turned his lease over to
Lederer and Canary. The househas known many managers and many changes of policy in its time and some of the most prominent actors of the present day have appeared
on its boards, among them Julia Marlowe, Nat Goodwin, Lillian Russell, Annie Yeamans, Lew Dockstader, and Thomas Q. Seabrook. It was here that Amelia Bingham appeared
in "The Climbers," opening December 17, 1900, with a company under her own management. The cast offering the Fitch play was unusally strong, including Frank Worthing,
Robert Edeson, John Flood, George C. Boniface, Jr., Ferdinand Gottschalk, J.B. Sterling, Harry Warwick, Edward Mooreland, H. Stokes, Fredrick Wallace, Harry Wallace,
Made Carr Cooke, Maud Monroe, Minnie Dupree, Amelia Irish, Florence Lloyd, Lillian Eldridge, Ysolbel Haskins and Ameelia Bingham.

The present manager of the Bijou is L.S. Sire, who has been in charge of the house some ten years. It has threatened of late to become a permenent shelter for
motion pictures, a form of entertainment that has several times been under its roof." - Ruth Crosby Dimmick (1911)

I could find NO advertisements or listings in the "Amusements" columns for the dates of the Princess Carpillona run.]
................................................................................................................

from American Musical Theatre: A Chronicle by Gerald Bordman:

"...Broadway watched Caverly's English Folly Company begin a month-long run with the burlesque Princess Carpillona."

But according to A History of the New York Stage, it lasted only four nights.

Note: It was strange; other than the one "coming soon" announcement and the Sun article - and ads - there was NO mention of
this production ever being in New York, although the same show would appear again (to less-than-pleasing notices) in 1894.
Was it a coincidence that the afternoon lectures by Professor Cromwell - in the same house - on such topics as
"Italy, the Art Land" were being were being faithfully reported on by the newspapers?

"The 'New Bully' was a knockout overnight. Coon-shouting, as translated into Caucasian,
was born and we were not to hear the end of it until a more slender age would introduce the jazz-baby.
Your coon-shouter was a lusty, rounded lady. She was all curves.
Her voice was a wild, raucous yell, and perfect intonation was her least concern."

- Issaac Goldberg, in: Tin Pan Alley, a Chronicle of the American Popular Music Racket, 1930

Note: There once was a link on the Internet that read -
"A clear and startlingly unexpurgated recording of ‘The New Bully’ by May Irwin can be heard HERE (Warning: not for the faint of heart)"
... but, unfortunately, it was decided most of us are too "Faint of Heart" and it was removed by the Powers That Be...

...and this was her fame - singing "Coon Songs" (See April 2, 1896 NY Sun article below)

Note: This ad from the December 12th edition of the Tribune (pg.16) was the last notice of this production.
As it falls on a Saturday, I'm using it as the closing date and assuming that the following notice from the December 19th
edition of the Evening World (pg.8) was simply a mistake. There was no other newpaper notice of the Bijou until the next
article appears in the February 12th, 1904 (pg.8) edition of the Tribune.

Note: I can find no notice of this production closing. The last clipping on it (March 30th, Glen Falls Post-Star)
made it sound as if the show was a success, but the next (April 5th, Tribune) mentioned that the Bijou had been
"closed since... 'Bluffs' was withdrawn." I have to make an educated guess, therefore, that Bluffs closed March 31, 1908.

- Buffalo Times / October 24, 1909 (pg.36) -


Note: Once again, a production seems to just "fade away, even after fairly good reviews.
I can find no closing notice, and the only reference to it past October 5th is from
the Buffalo Times (from their "New York Dramatic Correspondent") which announces it
is presently playing at the Bijou, but the article must have been held up in printing
because at that time The Debtors was playing. My guess is the closing date was October 9th.
(The 12th having fallen on a Tuesday.)

- Brooklyn Times / October 13, 1909 (pg.2) -


Note: Another case of "Now you see it, now you don't."
The last notice taken of The Debtors was in
the Buffalo Sunday Morning News, saying the show was
still playing at the Bijou, then nothing until the
Sun review of November 23rd that said, "Plays have
been coming and going there (the Bijou) for some time -
The Intruders, The Debtors and others."

Again, I have to estimate The Debtors closed on Saturday, October 30th.

(NOTE: The last newspaper reference I was able to find on Youth was the June 13th ad in the Evening World
which was on a Tuesday, leading me to believe that the show probably closed that Saturday (the 17th).

The next Bijou clipping states that the upcoming production of Baxter's Partners
will "reopen" the theater, which must mean the house was dark the week of June 17 - 25th,
but then after a dismal showing for Baxter's Partners, Youth mysteriously resurfaced on June 8th.

NOTE: After these disasterous reviews there was very little mention of Baxter's Partners..
The Brooklyn Life article shows it was played on July 8th, but that must have
been it's closing as the rivival of Youth began the next night.

Bijou Theatre / 209 W. 45th St.



The second Bijou Theatre was built by the Shubert family in 1917 at 209 W. 45th Street in New York City.
It was one of three theaters that hosted the premiere season of the musical Fancy Free—but primarily it presented plays by many writers,
including Sacha Guitry, John Galsworthy, A. A. Milne, James M. Barrie, Herman J. Mankiewicz,
Leslie Howard, Anton Chekhov, Henrik Ibsen, Luigi Pirandello, Graham Greene, Eugene O'Neill, William Saroyan, and Seán O'Casey.

In 1950, as the Bijou, it hosted one film, Cyrano de Bergerac, starring José Ferrer.
In 1951, it became a CBS radio studio, then — as the D. W. Griffith Theatre — it presented art films.
It was reinstated as the Bijou Theatre in 1965, but was demolished in 1982 to make room for the Marriott Marquis Hotel.
