Tulsa Spotlight Theatre located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States, hosts The Drunkard & Olio, with the first performance on November 14, 1953. The play has been performed almost every Saturday night, and the theatrical company (Tulsa Spotlighters, Inc.) claims it to be the longest-running stage production in America.[2] The 19th-century temperance melodrama The Drunkard has been performed virtually every Saturday night since November 14, 1953. [3]
Spotlight Theatre Tulsa performs The Drunkard at actor Richard Mansfield Dickinson's former home on Riverside Drive.[4] Dickinson's home was built in 1928-29, and the home is known as the Riverside Studio, whereas the performing arts enterprise inside the home is known as Tulsa Spotlight Theatre.
Riverside Studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States, was built in 1928-29. It was built as a house with a studio wing for a music teacher named Patti Adams Shriner.[5] The Riverside Studio was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]It was designed by architect Bruce Goff in International Style.
The house originally included a series of nine murals that Goff commissioned from Oklahoma artist Olinka Hrdy, but the murals later disappeared from the building; their fate has never been established clearly.[6] Facing financial distress during the Great Depression, Shriner lost her ownership of the building in 1933. Actor Richard Mansfield Dickinson bought it in 1941.
It is also home to Tulsa's finest children's theatre, Spotlight Children's Theatre, since 1997.
