Thank you for your support! In return, you will get access to EXCLUSIVE MATERIAL (photos, anecdotes, videos) in my blog entries, that will only be accessible to Members like you!

In addition, I will give you a personal shout-out (first name only, I promise) after the final end theme of the next episode I record. Because you have ponied up a little more, if you want, I'll do one of my "voices" for you - you can even ask me to do the shout-out in any accent or dialect you want to hear! Just send me a message here on Patreon about your request. I'll give it my best shot!

Plus, when I do my next Philadelphia Theater History Walking Tour, you will get the first chance to join the tour (before the general public) and will get 50% off the admission price.

About Adventures in Theater History

There’s a story to be told about the history of theater and performance in the city of Philadelphia, please join me as I attempt to research and uncover it. Not only the many Philadelphia theater buildings that rose and fell (sometimes in flames!) and then rose again - but also the great actors, the talented ensembles, the canny promoters, and the eager audiences. Theater history in this city did not happen in a vacuum. It happened in the midst of revolution and violence, creativity and idealism, greed and corruption, urban expansion and cultural conflict. I’m going on an exploration over the course of this podcast series. I’m going to tell you all the stories I’ve learned along the way. 

Patreon supporters of the podcast are helping to create an archive of oral history, one which will further document the history of Philadelphia Theater for the future! We are grateful for your support.
