Monumental history of the first major playhouse in Boston (est.
1794) from its reconstruction and redesign in 1854 through the turn of the century compiled from the theatre's records.

Heavily illustrated with hundreds photographs from the era, it remains a significant resource, not only of Boston theater history, but of the American stage as well. [Baker p. 177].
