Published 5 years and 6 months ago on Playbill

1921 The Music Box Revue of 1921 is the premiere performance at the new Music Box Theatre, which opened on 45th Street today. This is the first edition of the Revue, itself the first to exhibit the work of one composer. Included in this production's numbers are Irving Berlin's "Say It With Music" -- and Berlin himself is one of the performers. Miriam Hopkins also stars as one of the "Eight Little Notes." The show runs through the season and well into the next. On this date, exactly two years later in 1923, another version opens. This one has Grace Moore's rendition of "What'll I Do?" and a version of "Yes, We Have No Bananas."
