Leg business

   The success of The Black Crook, often referred to as the first musical, in New York in 1866 demonstrated that there was a huge paying audience for visual spectacle that included scantily clad women. The "leg business" was any endeavor that seemed to privilege female form over literary content. Olive Logan emerged as a vociferous critic of such degradation of theatrical art.
