Few comeback stories rival the dramatic one staged by Tulsa's historic Brady Theater. Built in 1914, this former vaudeville house has served generations of people with an array of some of the greatest names in show business. At one point in the late 20th century, Brady Theater was abandoned and considered a likely candidate for razing. After extensive renovation, the Brady Theater was reopened, standing again as a premier venue for quality entertainment.
Brady Theater is also notorious for its supposed haunting by the ghost of Enrico Caruso, an opera singer who performed there in 1920. Legend goes that while in Tulsa, Caruso was stuck outside in the rain for a long period of time, which caused him to contract pleurisy, an illness that ultimately took his life. The Oklahoma weather was blamed for his death, and rumor has it that he haunts Brady Theater today.
