Title

Africana Ticket 1927

Subject

Ethel Waters

Description

Here we can see exactly how much focus was put on Waters in her 1927 performance of the all black revue Africana at Daly's 63rd Street Theater. The ticket, much like all the marketing for the show, highlights not only Waters but Earl Dancer's influence. Theater goers, especially theater goers in the african american theater scene, would have known Dancer's important role as Water's manager and would have expected to see his name in association with her performances.
