    "Bird Cage Theater" Costume and Display Items Group of 5 (1954). The Bird Cage Theater is a replica of the original "Bird Cage Theater" in Tombstone, Arizona. The name came from the builder's wife who, on opening night, looked around and exclaimed, "Why, it's no larger than a bird cage!" Included in this lot is a rare woman's white top that was worn in a stage production at this theater. Also included is a great hand-painted marquee from the 1970s that reads: "The Bird Cage Theater Presents Live Old Time Melodrama 'Riverboat Revenge' (Boo the Villain, Cheer the Hero), a Comedy Melodrama." Two photos of the show are mounted to the 38" x 28" board. This original display piece has major handling and edge wear. It is in need of some restoration. Two black and white photos of longtime Bird Cage Theater performers displayed in the lobby are included (both in poor shape). Also, a vintage "Thurston the World's Famous Magician, The Wonder Show of the Earth" poster is also included in the lot. The 27" x 20" poster was printed by the Otis Lithograph Company. It is mounted to a board and is in poor condition, with many rips and tears. Full restoration will be required. Fair to Poor overall condition.
