(SULLIVAN, ARTHUR [OF GILBERT & SULLIVAN FAME]; GERMAN, EDWARD; AND HOOD, BASIL).
Prof. Bunn / Elocutionist / Mesmerist / Ventriloquist / Illusionist / and / Entertainer / Children's Parties a Specialty": An Original Broadside Promoting Performances by One of the Characters in the Comic Opera "the Emerald Isle".
Early 1900's. [1901]. [1901]. - A 13 inch high by 8-1/8 inch wide broadside printed in black on pink paper, proclaiming "Prof. Bunn, Elocutionist, Mesmerist, Ventriloquist, Illusionist, and Entertainer. Children's Parties a Specialty". The broadside's proclamation is much the same as that by which the character of Professor Bunn identifies himself in Arthur Sullivan's comic opera "The Emerald Isle". The broadside is folded horizontally and vertically with creases and a couple of short tears to the edges. Good. With a libretto by Basil Hood, the two-act comic opera "The Emerald Isle" was composed by Arthur Sullivan shortly before his death. Though he had only finished two musical numbers, he had left substantial notes and sketches for the voice part for much of the musical. The D'Oyly Carte Opera Company commissioned Edward German to complete the work which had its premiere at the Savoy Theatre on April 27, 1901. The musical follows the efforts of Irish patriots who resist the "re-education" program imposed on them by the British. Professor Bunn, a "Professor of Elocution" who was hired by the British, switches sides and supports the Irish patriots and their resistance movement. Needless to say, the story contains comic romance and tales of Irish fairy folklore. Good .

She worked over the years as a personal manager for the likes of Leopold Stokowski, Mary Martin, Jose Iturbi, Andre Kostalanetz, Nathan Milstein, and Lily Pons.

Her productions there from the 1940s through the 1960s were a revitalizing influence on the whole New York theatre scene. In 1951, Jean Dalrymple married Major-General Philip deWitt Ginder, commander of the Thunderbirds in Korea. She was a friend to Presidents and entertainment personalities throughout the world.
