Sample text

The size of the circuits was considerable, with twelve theatres as minimum average size, nine as the median and eight theatres as the most common size. During the 1880s, the routing of the travelling companies became a separate activity, and a few booking offices came to dominate the trade, programming circuits for whole seasons. In 1896 this culminated in the forming of a trust, the Theatre Syndicate, which virtually monopolised booking of all major (‘first-class’) theatres in the United States.

Ever-increasing demand for entertainment (discussed in the next chapter), falling transport and communication costs as well as growing urbanisation caused the change in industry structure. Urbanisation meant that more cities reached the minimum size for profitable performances and thus facilitated more efficient routes for travelling companies, with less downtime.

From the 1850s vaudeville moved from the larger to the smaller theatres. On vaudeville, see also Green (1965: 133). Green describes how dramatist Eugene Scribe, who specialised in vaudeville operas, rationalised the development of new productions. His home was like an atelier, with many people working on one production at the same time.
