Yankees in the West
6 October 2017 to 6 April 2018 Details
In 1793, in the face of strong legal and public opposition, the first public theater in Boston opened on Federal Street. An exhibition at MHS, mounted in coordination with the "Forgotten Chapters in Boston's Literary History" exhibition at the Boston Public Library, documents the battle over the Federal Street Theatre through the letters and publications of supporters and opponents of the theater, together with playbills from early performances.
