Program of George White presents "George White Scandals of 1937", The 12th Stage Edition at the Orpheum Theatre, Memphis, Tennessee, on November 25-26, 1936. The program states "Stars! Stars! A million dollars' worth! Song Hits! New! Peppy! You'll hum 'em! Hilarity! Glorious! Uproarious! Only 2 Days." The “new” Orpheum Theatre was built in 1928 as a vaudeville theater after fire destroyed the original building. The lavish “New Orpheum,” as it was often called, featured brocade draperies, crystal chandeliers, gilded moldings, and a Mighty Wurlitzer organ.
