Information for this tour was contributed by Darren Snow.

With a name reflecting the initials of founder Olin Giese, the 700-seat Oh-Gee merged with the Wildey in 1922 when production companies started pitting the two theatres against each other in bidding wars. After sitting idle for 17 years, the theatre underwent a $10,000 renovation and reopened as the Lux, under the management of Serra and Merritt.
