Antonio Majori Plays the Bowery

People’s Theatre, New York. Program for "Sig. Antonio Majori with his Entire Company", June 1902

Antonio Majori was born 1869 in Sicily, studied acting, and immigrated to New York in 1890. There he formed a group of Italian actors, and by 1900 had a toehold in a theater on Spring Street. This program, from a theater in the Bowery in 1902, offers Othello and Hamlet as well as several other dramas including Sardou’s La Tosca and Dumas’ Kean. Majori’s wife, Concetta Arcamone, played Desdemona and Ophelia. Though the program is in English, it appears that the plays were performed in Italian.
