in New York - the 1920's

from His Eye Is On the Sparrow, page 189:

I also sang "I'm Coming Virginia," and the Broadwayites loved it. I'd just made a record of that lovely song with "He Brought Joy to My Soul" on the other side. But it was the first time the ofays had heard "I'm Coming Virginia" in a theater.
