Harry Frazee

Harry Frazee was the prominent Broadway producer of No, No, Nanette, A Full House, Madame Sherry, Ladies First, A Pair of Sixes, The Madcap Duchess, Nothing But the Truth, Fine Feathers, and Ready Money.

A couple of the aforementioned shows were smash hits, including No, No, Nanette, which originally ran from September 16th, 1925 - June 19th, 1926, and Nothing But the Truth, which ran for 332 performances from September 14th, 1916 - July 1917. H. H. Frazee also owned a number of major theatre venues including the prestigious Longacre Theatre (which he founded) at 220 West 48th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue, in New York City.

Harry Frazee was also the American businessman who owned the Boston Red Sox Major League Baseball team and infamously sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees. Forever reviled by Boston Red Sox fans as the man who sold Babe Ruth, Frazee is blamed for the tongue-in-cheek "Curse of the Bambino." Since Frazee sold Ruth to the Yankees, Boston hadn't won a single World Series, and many attributed this to the curse. The "curse" was actually a blessing for the Yankees, who have gone on to win more than two dozen World Series Championships since the sale.

Boston's 80 year World Championship drought came to an end, and the curse considered broken, when the Red Sox won the 2004 World Series.
