Embassy Theatre 1938

The programme from the Embassy Theatre on Broadway for Monday 23rd May 1938 featuring, among others, Claire Ruane who took her “quaint comedy girl” skills in a rather different direction 37 years later when she made an appearance on the Benny Hill Show !

According to the programme notes, next week would feature a personal appearance from Hughie Green who went on several decades later to front Opportunity Knocks – a black & white version of Britain’s Got Talent ! At the time of this visit, 18 year old Hughie was touring with his “gang” made up of child variety performers of which he was very much the star.
