HDAS has 1937, as does M-W.  OED has a 1923 cite, but it ain't for the
music/play useage.

1916_Newark(OH) Daily Advocate_ 27 Sept. 7(NewspaperArchive) Scenery that
exactly fits the situation, special properties and effects a la the one
nighter, bring the productions up to and a little above the average high
priced attraction.
