″The Gaiety Theatre is a theatre on South King Street in Dublin, Ireland, off Grafton Street and close to St. Stephen’s Green. It specialises in operatic and musical productions, with occasional dramatic shows.” (Wikipedia)

″Maureen Potter was born in Dublin and educated at St. Mary’s school in Fairview. She had a long career in Irish theatre, mainly as Ireland’s première comedienne, but also as a straight actress. She was a regular performer at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin and for many years starred in Christmas pantomime. She became the first star to have a bronze cast of her handprints outside the theatre” (Wikipedia)
