  APOLLO THEATER SHOWS


By Marv Goldberg

© 2019 by Marv Goldberg



This is a listing of all Apollo Theater shows from 1934 - 1960.
After 1960, I lose interest in music, so there are far fewer listings,
mostly just artists that I've written about.



opening night cast Palmer Brothers Harlem's foremost theater, the Apollo, opened on January 26, 1934. (It had previously been a white burlesque house, but that night it switched over to "all-colored productions".) On the stage for the opening were Aida Ward (singer), Dusty Fletcher (comedian), Mabel Scott (singer), the 3 Rhythm Kings (dancers), the 3 Palmer Brothers (singers), Norton & Margot (dancers), Ralph Cooper's band, Benny Carter's orchestra, and Troy Brown (comedian). Vere E. Johns reviewed the show in the The New York Age of February 3:

first ads for the Apollo Theater The renovated Apollo theatre opened with a bang last Friday night and is now swinging along with its initial program. I think if they make this their foundation and build from there on, Harlem is in for a new deal in entertainment. Two things pleased me, one was the entire absence of sensuous dancing, salacious jokes and hokum, and the other was the decent attiring of the chorus, or I should say, the ladies of the ensemble. I want to compliment Clarence Robinson on his presentation of the dance embodying the spirit of "Emperor Jones," and also Norton's [of Norton & Margot] work as the principal figure. Aida Ward put over a couple of good songs and the chorus lent good support. Mable Scott from the Cotton Club also pleased with her songs but would be wise to pay more attention to her voice and less to wriggling and prancing about the stage. The Three Rhythm Kings harmonized nicely and the Three Palmer Brothers did some fast stepping and Bennie Carter's Band provided oodles of hot jazz. Dusty Fletcher is a good comedian and so is Troy Brown, but they will soon be back numbers if they don't give their public new gags and comedy; that sketch about the lunatic asylum has a beard a mile long. Ralph Cooper made a good entrance as m. c. and kept the program moving swiftly. The chorus consists of 16 pleasing girls, picturesquely costumed and they danced well. The fear being expressed that Harlem cannot support three vaudeville houses is shortsighted. Harlem could support a dozen such houses if they got the right programs; there are fully 150,000 Harlemites who have never seen the inside of any one of the three houses. Let the managers and producers go after that business and the best will win out.


HOWEVER, she got two of the acts mixed up. The Three Rhythm Kings were dancers, not singers. The Three Palmer Brothers were singers, not dancers. (She wasn't the only one confused; the ad called them the Three Farmer Boys.)

NOTES:
Billy Eckstine's real name was "Eckstein"; he used the original spelling until the 40s
Baby Laurence (dancer) was almost always billed as "Babe Lawrence"
Pops & Louie (young dancers) were Albert "Pops" Whitman & Louie Williams
Johnny & George were Johnny "Babyface" Maclin & George MacLean (or McLean); they introduced "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen"
Sahji was an "exotic dancer", whose real name was Madeline Jackson
Sunshine Sammy was child actor Ernie Morrison; he was one of the original Little Rascals
The revues in the early days were staged by Clarence Robinson

The rest are comedians:
      Pigmeat is Dewey Markham. Many times, only his name is given, but he usually had several comedians with him to do skits.
      Spider Bruce is John Mason. Many times, only his name is given, but he usually had several comedians with him to do skits.
      Apus & Estrellita were married. He's Apus Brooks, but his real name was Montrose Morse; she's Estrellita Bernier.
                  The act was originally called Apus & Stella
      Sandy is Sandy Burns
      Koko is Freddie Robinson, later of Freddie & Flo
      Freddie & Flo are Freddie Robinson & Florence Brown. They eventually got married.
      Yak Taylor is Edna Taylor. She seems to have spelled it "Yack", but the Apollo usually had "Yak"
      Crackshot's last name is Hackley. It's possible his first name is Louis.
      Vivian, if only her first name is given, is Vivian Harris. She later became the announcer for the Apollo for a few years.
      Johnny Vigal was just credited as "Vigal" on many occasions
      Jimmy Baskett was usually credited as "Baskette"; he played "Uncle Remus" in Disney's "Song Of The South"
      Spo-Dee-O-Dee is Sam Theard
      George is George Wiltshire
      Jackie Mabley wasn't called "Moms" until the late 40s
      Tim is Tim Moore, who played "Kingfish" on the Amos & Andy TV show
      Garbage is Marshall Rogers
      Butterbeans & Susie were Jodie "Butterbeans" Edwards & wife, Susie Edwards

A NOTE ON SPELLING: I've fixed up spelling that I know is incorrect, however, I've never heard of most of the acts, so I just have to accept what's in the ads, even though they may be inconsistent from appearance to appearance.
