I was an actor with the Wharf Theater in 1962-63, and have fond memories of the place. In those days, an impresario named Fred Foresman produced musicals with big name actors in feature roles at this theater. I don’t remember it as a “flea house” at all. It had reasonably large and complete dressing areas, and swinging doors at one side of the lobby which led into The Player’s Club – a very cozy bar with red flocked wallpaper, old brass registers and a back bar that had been shipped around Cape Horn. At around this same time, Foresman was managing a national tour of Dame Judith Anderson in Medea. He was a real gentleman, and certified the Equity points I earned at this venue. I’d love to hear from anyone who remembers those days.
