I went here in May and did a backstage tour. I have a family history connection to the Theatre as my ancestors worked here in the 1860's. I was so lucky. I was the only one there, so got a one on one tour.
I found it fascinating, informative and just plain interesting. This theatre led the way and has so many, "firsts" or, "was the only one", in its history, more people should go. To see what goes on behind the big productions as well as how theatre got to where it is today was great.
I am soooooo sore not to remember the name of the young lady that lead me around but her knowledge and abilty to stay on story, when I kept babling on about my family connection was great.
This is a real hidden gem and I recommend this to anyone who loves the stage and wants to peek behind the curtain.
