Much has been commented in the literary magazines of the beginning twentieth century about the decadence of the Brazilian theater. One of the reasons for this impoverishment was credited to the musical theater and operettas. These genres, provoking easy and "digestive" laugh, according to critics, distanced the theater from its civilizing role. The aim of this paper is to contribute to the discussion that refutes this claim about the decay of the Brazilian theater. It's impossible to consider the theater decline when, reading São Paulo’s literary magazines from the beginning of the twentieth century (1901-1922), we found many criticisms of theatrical shows and ads. They weren’t, in most cases, the plays valued by the critics of the time, but belong to the Brazilian theatrical history and, now we know, had its value.
