THE LARGER CIRCUITS AND BOOKING OFFICES

The following vaudeville circuits, while they may not maintain regular producing departments, produce acts every now and then.

THE UNITED BOOKING OFFICES OF AMERICA, 1564
  Broadway, New York.  This organization books
  the B. F. Keith Theatres and allied small- and
  big-time houses
ORPHEUM CIRUIT COMPANY, 1564 Broadway, New York
LOEW’S THEATRICAL ENTERPRISES, 1493 Broadway, New York
POLI’S CIRCUIT, 1493 Broadway, New York
THE WESTERN VAUDEVILLE MANAGERS’ ASSOCIATION,
  Majestic Theatre Building, Chicago
GUS SUN CIRCUIT, New Sun Theatre Building,
  Springfield, Ohio
BERT LEVEY CIRCUIT, Alcazar Theatre Building, San Francisco
PANTAGE’S CIRCUIT, Seattle
SULLIVAN AND CONSIDINE, Seattle

To these markets nearly every booking agent and manager in the vaudeville business might be added.  Each one has a list of acts he handles that need new material from time to time.  And often the agent or manager will add to his list of clients by producing an exceptionally fine act himself.

The reason such a list is not given here is that it would require a small volume merely for the names and addresses.  Consultation of “The Clipper Red Book”—­a handy directory of theatrical agents, sold at ten cents—­will supply this information.  A knowledge of the special kinds of acts handled by each agent or manager, and the producers previously given as well, may be gathered by a careful reading of the various theatrical specialized journals.  This knowledge can only be acquired a bit here and a little there through persistent attention to the notices of new acts and announcements of plans.
