Blaney's Lincoln Square, New York, January 1909.
'Grace Hazzard in her "Five Feet of Opera" again scored a tremendous hit. Each one of her wonderfully dexterous changes of costume, with its accompanying song from one of the operas, was roundly applauded, and her finale in Scotch kilties created an uproar of applause.'
(The New York Dramatic Mirror, New York, Saturday, 23 January 1909, p.17d)

'Arrangements have been made whereby the Mittenthal Brothers will star Grace Hazzard, known to the vaudeville world because of her success in her "Five Feet of Comic Opera," in The Parisian Model. Miss Hazzard will head a large company, including a chorus of good singing and dancing girls. In the meanwhile the dainty artist will play a few farewell weeks in vaudeville over the William Morris, Inc., time, delighting her numberless admirers in that field.'
(The New York Dramatic Mirror, New York, Saturday, 1 May 1909, p.29b/c)
