In the s the process of booking acts for local theaters was a haphazard affair. During the summer, theater managers from all over the country would converge on New York's Union Square, then the center for theater business, and attempt to line up their seasons by contacting agents for individual attractions, often accosting them on the street. Once the agent and the manager came to terms, there was nothing to prevent an agent from reneging on an agreement to play a particular theater if a better offer came along from another manager.

But there was also nothing to prevent a manager from double-booking two attractions for the same play date to prevent having a hole in his schedule if one company did not show up. Once a production company was out on the road, the results of these slipshod arrangements could be disastrous, particularly if a producer decided to cut his losses and fold the company before it returned to New York. The practice of leaving actors stranded on the road became one of the major reasons for the founding of Actors' Equity Association. It was ostensibly to correct these abuses, but mainly to ensure profitability for all concerned, that in five theater owners and booking agents formed a trust, the Theatrical Syndicate, that came to be known by the names of its two most prominent members, Marc Klaw and Abraham L.
The Syndicate began by controlling a significant number of theaters throughout the country and within a very short time controlled nearly all the major theaters on major transportation routes. The effects of the Syndicate are still being debated: on the one hand, formation of the Syndicate standardized financing, touring, contracts, and promotion; on the other, independent theaters could not get the best attractions which usually belonged to the Syndicate and independent attractions could not get booked into the best theaters which were usually controlled by the Syndicate.
Schloss became the Syndicate's main representative in North Carolina.
Operating from his home base in Wilmington, and with the clout of the Syndicate behind him, he developed a chain of theaters that brought theatrical attractions of every type to nearly every part of the state. Cowan who also held the lease on New Bern 's Masonic Opera House but regained it by merging his growing operations with theirs in With the booking arrangements for these theaters all handled by Schloss and his local managers his nephew Marx S.
Upchurch in Raleigh, among others , theater programming became more consistent. Audiences in Tarboro or Monroe could see the same attractions for the same prices as the audiences in Raleigh or Charlotte, because major attractions would be more likely to play a smaller venue if they were also booked into the larger towns. This did not mean that they consistently got the best: though major stars of the day like Richard Mansfield, Otis Skinner, De Wolf Hopper, and others long forgotten did play North Carolina towns during the era of the opera house, most of the programming that Schloss and his fellow managers brought in was typical of that found in other theaters across the country.

The term opera house gave a patina of respectability to attending entertainments that might have been suspect. Very little grand opera made its way into any but the halls in the largest towns. The fare was a steady diet of melodrama, light comedies, and minstrel shows, occasionally spiced by something more substantial like Shakespeare or concerts by soloists and groups ranging from the New York Philharmonic to John Philip Sousa's band.
Most people did not mind how bland most of it was; the goal was entertainment, not an aesthetic or moral uplift.
Schloss appears to know just what the people want. In addition to his theatrical activities, Schloss owned and operated a music store as well as the bill-posting company that was a forerunner of the modern outdoor advertising industry. The company was operated by his son as Outdoor Advertising of Charlotte. Schloss's widow ran his theater enterprises after his death but finally sold them to S.
Lynch of Asheville in By then the great days of touring theater were over, and movies had become the country's chief form of popular entertainment. At the end of the show Harpo would make curtain call after curtain call. On the next day, one Soviet critic would write that Harpo had received, 'an unprecedented standing ovation, lasting ten minutes.
Harpo loved every minute of it, 'No other success ever gave me quite the same satisfaction. Besides, it happened on my fortieth birthday.
The show was an incredible success. Everywhere it played it received the same enthusiastic response it had met in Moscow. For years after the Bolsheviks seized power in Russia, the government of the United States had not recognized the Soviet government, but the new administration of Franklin Roosevelt decided that it was time to do so.
