Many thanks for the info: it's MUCH appreciated! I had the Grande Theatre (spelt as "Grand") for my magician for October 1906, but didn't have a date. This comes from the "Conjurors Monthly Magazine", vol. 1 nr. 3, p. 88. My magician (Chefalo, incidentally...) was again in Pittsburgh the week of June 22, 1908 (a newspapers' clip), but it would be two months after Houdini's performance, so I doubt this can be the date I'm searching for.
So: has anybody got a programme for the two weeks of the Grande Opera Theatre in Pittsburgh starting Sep. 24, 1906 to check whether Houdini and Chefalo were on the same bill? I can't find at the "usual sources" (newspaperarchive.com) any Pittsburgh newspaper for the period... :(
Many thanks, much appreciated!
