The sharks will be your tour guides

Prominent theatrical manager Charles Frohman died on this day in 1915. He was a passenger on the Lusitania when it was sunk by a German submarine. As the story goes, he was last seen trying to calm passengers by saying:

"Why fear death? Death is only a beautiful adventure."

"Death is only a beautiful adventure" is a line from Peter Pan.
