Victorian London - Entertainment and Recreation - Theatre and Shows - Theatres and Venues - Actors, Actresses and Acts - Lottie Collins

"Lottie Collins has brought to the nation her new song with the weird name Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay. The words and title may sound silly and stupid, but the song has taken London and all England by storm. I shall never forget the night I heard Lottie sing it at London's Gaiety Theatre."

Charles Pipe, Memoirs, 1892
