The Lyceum Theatre plays a role in the story The Sign of the Four; it's here that Miss Morstan brings Watson and Holmes, after receiving a note instructing her to "be at the third pillar from the left at The Lyceum Theatre at seven o'clock". The play Sherlock Holmes, written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle with William Gillette, also transferred to the Lyceum in 1901 after its successful run in New York, with a cast that included a young Charlie Chaplin.
Pooh and his friends were given as gifts by author A. A. Milne to his son Christopher Robin Milne between 1920 and 1922. Pooh was purchased in London at Harrods for Christopher’s first birthday. Christopher later gave them to publisher E. P. Dutton, who in turn donated them to the New York Public Library.
