Lost Broadway Theatres celebrates their return, and pleads on behalf of other hidden beauties whose fate may not yet be sealed. Updated to 1997, Lost Broadway Theatres recalls, in photos and memories, playhouses from the colossal and opulent American Theatre, now a parking lot, to the cozy Punch and Judy, now the site of an office building. The good news is that several of the houses previously considered doomed but not yet demolished have been restored in the Times Square boom.

Theaters are more than just buildings, more than giant musical instruments, as some have described them. More by Nicholas van Hoogstraten. Lost Broadway Theatres. Nicholas van Hoogstraten. Johnny Guitar: The Musical.

New York City's history can be told through its theatres. Sad that so many were torn down.
Eayaroler
Wonderful book, with great pictures and histories; but makes one very sad that we have lost so many glorious old New York theatres. Happy that so many of them remain and are somewhat protected now.

This great houses, palaces of art...almost everyone gone forever...4 stars because more theatres were not included. What a sad day where they destroyed these beautiful buildings...but the greedy don't care...$$$$ all they want with no love of anything else.

I had seen this book several years ago, and because of recent New York associations wanted to buy it. The listing on Amazon and the condition of the ordered book were exactly as I had anticipated. The book was in excellent/like new condition. It arrived in just a few days. I was really pleased with the order and the purchase. It is an engaging and well rendered summary of New York legitimate theatres from the late 19th Century to the present day. 91 Theatres are featured in this volume. It is a fun and wistful overview of the buildings that housed some of the most creative entertainment in the U.S. in the 20th Century. Thank you.
