Parker announced in 1911 that more than 15, 000 performers had gone through his hands, and audiences had reached a quarter of a million!! Date: 1906

Caricature of Augustus Harris and Henry Pettitt

Caricature of Augustus Harris (1852-1896), British actor, dramatist and impresario, and Henry Alfred Pettitt (1848-1893), British actor and dramatist -- Never mind, Pettitt, if the newspapers don't like our railway collision, the Pit and Gallery do. Their new sensational melodrama, Pluck, was in production at Drury Lane Theatre, London. Despite the excitement of a train wreck, a snowstorm, a mob breaking windows and a burning building, the seven long acts and waits between scenes had irritated the critics.
1882
