Summary
American Theaters celebrates the history of these wonderful buildings from the nineteenth century to the present, with beautifully illustrated profiles of 40 of the finest theaters still in operation around the country. Leading us backstage and onstage, from lobby to loge, this book embraces the full spectrum of theater types and styles. David Naylor's breathtaking photographs, all originals and published here for the first time, include stunning examples of early Eastern town hall opera houses, Midwest venues, and boomtown opera houses. They capture in splendid detail the unique design and character of revival halls and Chautauquas, simple community halls and library theaters, and ambitious Victorian playhouses, grand opera houses, and concert halls
