Sunday performances

   Sunday performances had a checkered history during the modernist era. Blue laws in rural areas often prohibited Sunday performances, while urban theatre managers fought hard to gain or retain that major source of revenue. Sunday was often chosen for benefit performances. By the early 20th century, Sunday performances happened with greater frequency, most famously when Al Jolson gave Sunday night solo concerts at the Winter Garden while also appearing during the week in a Shubert-produced musical show.
