One of David Belasco s most popular plays, Zaza opened at the Garrick Theatre on 9 January 1899 starring Mrs. Leslie Carter. Belasco based his play on an earlier work by Pierre Burton and Charles Simon, placing emphasis on Zaza, a sexy music hall performer pursued by a married aristocrat. Zaza successfully capitalized on Mrs. Carter's notorious past (she had been divorced by her society husband, who proved adultery), and it played successful return engagements in 1900, 1904, and 1905. No less than three motion picture versions were made (1915, 1923, 1939).
