My birth parents both worked at this theatre in the 1950s before it was demolished…father was a burlesque comedian, Richard Nelson Luke…mother was dancer, only knew her as the Indianapolis News old clipping advertised her as “the gorgeous Patty Lynn”…if anyone knows any information on this era or them, I’d love pics, stories, etc. I was adopted and only know bits and pieces…would like to know mother’s maiden name. Thanks for the pictures. I had never been able to find anything about the theatre!
