Rooftop theatre in 1900. Djuna Barnes writes “Come Into the Roof Garden Maude” describing the beautiful and lavish rooftop gardens as an escape to the business of urban life: “Everything on, in and about a roof garden, from the little white and green match-stands to the wide spanning arches of red light, is an appeal. Sometimes it is an appeal for silence; sometimes it is an appeal for laughter; often it is an appeal for help” (411).
