The Haunted Theatres of Broadway @ Westport Library
October 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Some of the most entertaining spirits of this world—or the next—can be found in Robert Viagas’ entertaining talk, The Haunted Theatres of Broadway, about the real-life (and real death) stories of the ghosts who haunt theatres around the world.
Meet womanizing ghost David Belasco, the laughing ghost of the St. James Theatre, the phantom audience that died in a fire at the Iroquois Theatre in Chicago, the “Black Goon” of Disney’s New Amsterdam Theatre, the ghost cat who haunts the Kennedy Center in Washington DC and Olive Thomas, the flirtatious spirit of a Ziegfeld showgirl, who appears only to men and who greeted the author by shaking scenery backstage at the Broadway theatre she still haunts to this day.
