Texas Pavilion & Music Hall

"Friendship at the Fair" was the theme of the Texas pavilion and its adjacent 2,400 seat Music Hall. In addition there was an exhibit called "Life on the Range" and "Art in Texas." The Frontier Palace restaurant and bar in the theater building sported a facade out of the Old West. Outside was a beer garden, snack bar and wandering entertainers.

The Music Hall presented a 90 minute spectacular called "To Broadway With Love." The new show, by producer George Schaefer, was an anthology packed with the moods and music of the American theater from "The Black Crook" of 1864 to recent hits. The show, which cost $1,250,000 to stage, had imaginative costumes and effects.

Admission was $2.00 with reserved seats $4.80. Three performances daily.
