    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This program, and others on the DuMont network, was broadcast from the DuMont Adelphi Teletheatre, 152 W. 54th Street in Manhattan. The theatre opened on December 24, 1928 as the Craig but was dark from 1931 to 1934, when it was reopened as the Adelphi on November 27th. From 1936 to 1939 it was used by the Federal Theatre Project. As a Broadway theatre the Adelphi was off the beaten path and considered less than desirable. Actor William Gaxton dubbed it the "dump of dumps." A show that premiered there and became a hit usually transfered to a "better" theatre. It was renamed the Radiant Center by the Royal Fraternity of Master Metaphysicians in December 1940 and became the Yiddish Arts Center on October 18, 1943 before reopening as a legitimate stage on April 20, 1944. In 1949 DuMont leased it as their TV stage. After the Dumont network disappeared the theatre opened as the 54th Street Theatre on October 8, 1958 and in November 14, 1965 was again reopened as the George Abbott Theatre before it was finally demolished in 1970. Some of the shows that played there were On The Town, Damn Yankees and No Strings.
