Founded in 1900 as a pictorial quarterly called OUR PLAYERS GALLERY, it changed its name to THE THEATRE with the May, 1901 issue, when it became a monthly edited by Arthur Hornblow. THEATRE was one of the magazines about acting and the stage and broadway and the players who fill our lives with joy, sorrow, and entertainment. A good short history of this magazine can be found at the eNewsstand project.
The Library of Congress file of THEATRE runs from 1901 to 1931, under the titles THEATRE (1901-July 1917) and THEATRE MAGAZINE (Aug. 1917-April 1931). With such a generic title one might expect other magazines with the same name, and it was so; we include an 1888 magazine issue from New York and a British weekly from 1891 as examples. The LC call number is PN2000 .T5 fol. if you should be so inclined. ISSN: 0749-8829.
