Falk, Benjamin

(1853-1925)
   The New York photographer is credited with capturing on film for the first time ever the entire stage picture at the end of an act. This occurred following the performance of A Russian Honeymoon at the Madison Square Theatre on 1 May 1883. The play by Mrs. Burton Harrison managed to crib both from Eugene Scribe and from Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew with a suitably striking tableau for the act 2 curtain.
