It pays to advertise

   Roi Cooper Megrue and Walter Hackett got 399 performances out of their farce that opened on 8 September 1914 at the Cohan Theatre, produced by George M. Cohan and Sam H. Harris, and directed by Sam Forrest. "Not often in the course of a season is it given to the first-nighters to roar so heartily," wrote the New York Times reviewer (9 September 1914), surmising that Cohan and Harris had the Midas touch with the pile of play manuscripts from which they extracted such entertainment.
