Aeolian 30245, "Sybil Selections", medley, Introducing: 1. Following
the Drum; 2. Good Advice; 3. The Colonel of the Crimson Hussars; 4. Lift
Your Eyes to Mine; 5. I like the Boys. Music by Hungarian composer
Victor Jacobi (1914), English lyrics composed for 1916 Musical Play by
Harry Graham & Harry B Smith. The show opened on January 10,
1916, and ran 169 performances at the Liberty Theatre on Broadway.
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."
