The Academy of Music is listed under Milwaukee in the 1897-98 edition of the Julius Cahn Official Theatrical Guide but there is almost no information. It says: “Academy of Music – E.L. Webster & Co., Mgrs. Continuous Performances” The latter comment seems to suggest that it was a variety theater, with Vaudeville, minstrel shows, etc. The 1897 population of Milwaukee was 275,000.
