Episode 1: Welcome to Adventures in Theater History

Episode 1: Welcome to Adventures in Theater History

This is the Introduction to entire Adventures in Theater History podcast. In this episode, we explain why we're here, and what we're trying to do with this method of historical storytelling.  Peter tells the story of his own personal history, and how he started on the task of researching, exploring, and teaching the history of the theater in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  The matter of spelling the word "theater" (as opposed to "theatre") is explained, and the complexities and attractions and challenges of the Philadelphia's history is addressed. We also learn that Peter is a Smartypants Know-it-All, and how Chris is an award-winning composer and sound designer.
