This announcement was published in the student newspaper of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, The Tech, on Friday, November 3, 1916:
"SYBIL" -- Frohman, Rieh & Harris present Technology this evening with Julia Sanderson, Donald Brian and Joseph Cawthorn together in "Sybil." They found "Sybil" in Vienna and had Harry Graham and Harry H Smith make an English version of the book.  The original music by Victor Jacobi, who wrote "The Marriage Maket," they retained intact, for it was a lot better than musical comedies are usually equipped with.  They put these three stars in it -- there was just the right sort of part for each of them -- and they produced it at the Liberty Theatre, New York. That was just after the holidays. It "caught on" at once and for months the house was sold out for weeks in advance.  At last Miss Sanderson and the others demanded a vacation and the management was forced to give it to them. Tonight they present it as "Tech Night" and feel confident that it will "pass judgement."
