- In the original N.Y. production of Florodora Lady Holyrood was played by the actress/singer Edna Wallace Hopper (right). Edna was the estranged wife of actor William DeWolf Hopper - who played Ravenne in Erminie. Edna was a San Francisco native and from all accounts led a rather colorful life.
- The original London production of Florodora premiered at the Lyric Theatre which some of you might recall was built from the proceeds from Dorothy, a previous Discovery production. Just as Dorothy far outran The Mikado, Florodora far outran The Rose of Persia.
I like to find out about the people who starred in and created the shows as it gives me a better feeling of connection to the material.
