Lights on again at Colonial, Boston ?

Our New York City member Debbie  Humphreys sends a link which provides some good news about Boston’s 112 year old playhouse which for many years was a premier Broadway show venue and long a Shubert organization stronghold.

It was designed by prolific local architect Clarence Blackall who did 19 Boston theatres.  It seats about 1700 and is known for its intricate plaster work and many murals.

THS saw the Colonial during our 1983 Conclave / Theatre Tour organized by our late member J. Paul Chavanne  and again in 2006 for the Conclave chaired by member Bob Stinson.
