Mrs. Warren’s Profession written by George Bernard Shaw and produced at the Manhattan Theatre on March 9, 1907

Two scenes of Mrs. Warren’s Profession (first published in 1893) written by the British playwright George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) and produced at the Manhattan Theatre on March 9, 1907





"New York City, 1907. Daly and his company, having been vindicated, produce Mrs. Warren’s Profession at the Manhattan Theatre. This production tours nationally."

"The case meandered through New York’s legal system for several months, but there was a happy ending. By the time it reached the New York Court of Special Sessions on 6 July 1906 all charges had been dropped. Mrs Warren’s Profession re-opened at the Manhattan Theatre in March 1907, still with Mary Shaw as Mrs Warren, and subsequently went on a lengthy tour, free from Comstockian molestation, throughout the United States."
