Notes
Content: Consists of 15 costume designs, 6 set designs, and 6 plates depicting props for a production in nine scenes of THE GARDEN OF PARADISE, produced by Liebler & Co. at the Park Theatre in New York City. An adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's THE LITTLE MERMAID, the play opened on November 28, 1914, but closed after only seventeen performances. It was then bought by Florenz Ziegfeld for his Midnight Frolics. According to Best Plays of 1909-1919, "The later downfall of the house of Liebler & Co...was presaged by [this] elaborately handsome production."
Content: Forms part of the Liebler & Co. Records.
Content: Joseph Urban, artist, architect and designer for the theater, was born in Vienna, Austria and died in New York City. His designs for The Garden of Paradise were his first for the New York theater.
Content: Set designs include 4 designs for garden and palace views and 2 for the shipwreck.
