In the 1940s, a hockey stadium owner hired an ice skater to perform between periods, giving depression-era crowds more for their money. After discovering what a hit the skater was with the crowd, the owner decided to use the rink for an ice skating show through the off season. This show became known as the Ice Capades, which brought millions of fans to watch skaters perform Broadway-style shows. Source: Mentalfloss
