The audience is well dressed, many men in evening wear. Designed by Architects Kimbal & Wisedell, the Casino Theatre stood on this corner from 1882 to 1930. It was renovated and partially reconstructed in 1905 following a fire. For approximately 50 years, some under the management of the Shuberts, the theatre showed musicals, operettas and vaudeville acts.
