The Belle of New York

Violet Gray is a Salvation Army girl who becomes an heir to a fortune belonging to Ichabod Bronson. She has been chosen as the recipient of this windfall because Ichabod, although not averse to dallying with the odd chorus girl himself, is a firm believer in organisations such as the Young Men's Rescue League and the Anti-Cigarette Society. He has found out that his playboy son, Harry, intends to marry actress Cora Angelique. Violet, for her part, is intent on Harry getting the inheritance - and her as well! Her saucy performance of the "At Ze Naughty Folies Bergère"does the trick - Ichabod cannot possibly leave his fortune to someone who behaves like that, and Harry's name goes back in the will. Harry finally sees the error of his ways and falls in love with sweet, simple Violet.

Women Designing for Theater, Opera, and Dance Take Center Stage in Exhibition at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts! Everyone loves a backstage story, and none so much as the one about the brilliant but unsung talent who finally makes it into the spotlight. The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the League of Professional Theatre Women bring that long-deserved moment to 140 of those stories in Curtain Call: Celebrating a Century of Women Designing for Live Performance . Featuring treasures from the Library's archives, Curtain Call is a multi-media exhibition crackling with creative verve and bursting at the seams with the dazzling works of the little-noted women without whose costume, set, and lighting designs and innovations the show could not have gone on in North America for the past hundred-plus years. This is the stuff that makes the audience gasp in awe. This is the opportunity to meet those responsible for taking our breath away.
