New York Broadway Musical Theatre The Student Prince Ancienne Photo White Studio 1924 #1

Vintage White Studio Photo in New York.

Broadway Theatre
The Student Prince in Heidelberg
The Student Prince is an operetta in four acts with music by Sigmund Romberg and book and lyrics by Dorothy Donnelly. It is based on Wilhelm Meyer-Förster's play Old Heidelberg. The piece has elements of melodrama but lacks the swashbuckling style common to Romberg's other works. The plot is mostly faithful to its source.

It opened on December 2, 1924, at Jolson's 59th Street Theatre on Broadway. The show was the most successful of Romberg's works, running for 608 performances, the longest-running Broadway show of the 1920s. It was staged by J. C. Huffman.

Drinking Song, with its rousing chorus of Drink! Drink! Drink! was especially popular with theatergoers in 1924, as the United States was in the midst of Prohibition.
