Room Service


October 27 & 28, 1938


Majestic Theatre


A nimble-witted producer, living on credit with several actors in a Broadway hotel, is desperately in need of a good script. He finds one, and by great luck, he also finds an angel with $15,000.00. During a hectic few days, the producer plays hide-and-seek with the angel, who wants to withdraw his financial support, manages to outwit the creditors, and at the very last moments puts on his play in spite of the most ludicrous and unexpected obstacles.

Authors: John Murray and Allen Boretz

Historian’s Corner

Only two weeks before the Players were to open their production of “Room Service,” the Marx Brothers movie of the same title played in Bloomington. On a sad historical note, no programs were kept in the original scrap books for this entire season.
