The Girls of Gottenberg

First line:
Once in the window of a ham and beef shop
first performed on 15 May 1907 at the Gaiety Theatre
author of text

The Girls of Gottenberg (Gaiety, 15 May 1907) was based on a recent incident at Köpenick, just outside Berlin, when a shoemaker posed as a Prussian officer and took over the city hall. The incident did little more than provide an excuse for poking some light-hearted fun at the Germans, as in the duet Two little sausages, performed by Gertie Millar as an innkeeper’s daughter and Edmund Payne as Max Moddelkopf.
