Go the Champagne Girls….
Tru Fax time:
Mam’zelle Champagne was a musical revue by Edgar Allan Woof with music by Cassius Freeborn and produced by Henry Pincus. It opened June 25, 1906 at the outdoor Madison Square Garden Roof Theatre…and on that occasion, even though the revue was rather flat, things were livened up by Harry K Thaw shooting and killing the architect Stanford White in one of the great Belle Epoque scandals. Thaw justified his murder of White by saying White had seduced his wife before he married her (that would be former chorus girl and model Evelyn Nesbit, an all-around “It” girl before the phrase was coined).
Mam’zelle Champagne was pretty undistinguished otherwise, but it ran for another 60 performances, based largely on the notoriety from the opening night scandal.
