The Road to yesterday

   Beulah Marie Dix and Evelyn Green-leaf Sutherland collaborated on this four-act romantic satire produced by Lee Shubert on 31 December 1906 at the Herald Square Theatre. Achieving 216 performances, it became somewhat better known as the source for Victor Herbert's final operetta, The Dream Girl, in 1924. The Dix-Sutherland play starred Minnie Dupree as Elspeth Tyrell, an American girl in London who dreams she is in Elizabethan England. Kidnapped by a handsome rogue in her dream, Elspeth awakes to realize that the rogue of her dreams resembles a man she knows, thus kindling romantic feelings. Cecil B. DeMille directed a 1925 motion picture version of The Road to Yesterday.
