A Trip to Chinatown

  • 1891
Cincinnati, OH: The Strobridge Lithography Company
  • Color litho. At top “Hoyt’s "A Trip to Chinatown" with insert at center "From Hoyt's Madison Square Theatre New York" and another insert at right "Frank McKee/Manager." The image shows two images of a fancy restaurant, one showing a man dining with a woman and the other a man dining alone and looking at his watch. Bottom caption reads “. . . what he expected and what he got . . .”
  • Hoyt's first and greatest success, the play is also credited by Bordman as moving American farce-comedy toward the modern musical. It opened at Madison Square Theatre, ran for 635 performances, and featured the song "The Bowery." By 1896 it was playing the West End and it continued to be revived here and abroad for decades. The film version arrived in 1926, with screenplay by Beatrice Vann and starring Anna May Wong.
