Arizona


Arizona
   A melodrama in four acts by Augustus Thomas, Arizona opened on 10 September 1900 at the Herald Square Theatre under the management of Kirke La Shelle and Fred R. Hamlin for 140 performances. Lieutenant Denton, serving with the 11th Cavalry in Arizona, must contend with the amoral Captain Hodgman, who has fathered an illegitimate child by one woman while attempting to seduce the colonel's wife, Estrella. Denton's quiet good deeds to save the situation are turned against him and he resigns his commission. When Hodgman leads a band of renegade Indians to attack his fiancée's ranch, Denton inspires his former troops to join him in fighting off the attack. Arizona was revived in 1913 by William A. Brady, made into three motion pictures (1913, 1918, 1931), and adapted into a Broadway operetta by Sigmund Romberg, titled The Love Call (1927).
