“Donna in the News” reports newly found newspaper articles and advertisements regarding my grandmother, Madonna Montran (aka Donna Montran and Donna Darling). I am always excited when I find a new venue for my grandmother’s exciting show business career of the 1910s and 1920s. 

This week from the Atlanta Journal (Atlanta, GA) dated 8 November 1923, I learned that Donna played at the Forsyth Theatre from November 8th to the 10th, 1923.
