Description

This is a study of a ticket agent, his business methods and his contributions to the Broadway theatre. It contains elements of biography, economic history of the American stage and insights into the relationship between Broadway producers and the people who sold the tickets to their attractions. The book recounts a number of then-famous battles between powerful producers and the ticket agencies. It set the scene for readers not familiar with the period by giving ample background and then traces the growth and development of Joe Leblang's agency. This agency exerted so potent a force on the Broadway theatre that the period would not have been the same had his agency not existed.
