The African American Theatre Directory, 1816-1960: A Comprehensive Guide to Early Black Theatre Organizations, Companies, Theatres, and Performing Groups

By Bernard L. Peterson Jr. | Go to book overview

INDEX OF NAMES
This index includes the names and page references for most individuals and small performing groups cited in this directory. Individuals include those involved in the creation and production of shows, in the administration and membership of companies and theatres, and in associated and peripheral aspects and areas of show business. Since the billing of theatrical names often varies throughout the years and some 2,000 names here are culled from a variety of sources, some less reliable than others, the author and editors have corrected obvious glaring errors, but not all variations in spelling and usage that frequently appear in cast lists and company rosters. The most popular version of the name is listed as the main entry, and variant forms appear in brackets or parentheses. Similar names are often listed as separate entries unless there is strong evidence that they identify the same person or group. Small performing groups include quartets, trios, vaudeville acts and teams. Larger companies and organizations are included in the Index of Black Theatrical Organizations and Theatres. Symbols used in this index (such as asterisks, degree signs, and double daggers) match those used throughout the main directory and are explained in pages xxviii and xxix. Cross references have been used liberally throughout this index.
