[GREENWALL'S] AMERICAN THEATRE STOCK COMPANY. The American Theatre Stock Company ( New York, New York), also known as Greenwall's American Theatre Stock Company, was organized in the spring and summer of 1900 by theatre owner and producer Henry Greenwall, who, with his partner Albert Weis, leased the American Theatre on Eighth Avenue and Forty-second Street in Manhattan. The American, which had opened in 1893, was a 1,900-seat proscenium house that had just been vacated by the Castle Square Opera Company after a successful three-year stint of presenting opera in English at popular prices. The American Theatre Stock Company opened on September 1, 1900, with a production of The Great Ruby, a melodrama by Cecil Raleigh and Henry Hamilton.
Henry Greenwall had begun his career as a theatre manager in Galveston, Texas, in 1867, and by the turn of the century was owner of a profitable circuit of theatres in Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana. In the early 1890s Greenwall rented office space in New York City and created a free booking service for his own and other southern theatres. When A. L. Erlanger arrived in New York with no money, Greenwall loaned him $500 and gave him free office space. Erlanger repaid his kindness by securing for himself the exclusive right to book
