Don't miss An Evening with Broadway Insider Peter Filichia!





ATG is thrilled to present an evening with veteran theater critic and Broadway insider Peter Filichia during the grand re-opening celebration of the newly-renovated Hamilton Stage in Rahway, NJ, on Sat. Feb. 3, at 7pm. If you're interested in an authentic behind-the-scenes look at Broadway's biggest stars and shows, this is a must-see event.
Peter, who has seen over 12,500 shows in 47 states and 17 foreign countries, will present “A Personal History of The American Theater” complete with anecdotes, gossip and entertaining tales of his life on the aisle, including his 30 years as the state’s top critic for the NJ Star-Ledger. There will be stories about memorable audience members, ranging from Richard Rodgers’ daughter Mary to the young black man and elderly white woman who buttressed Peter at The Wiz. He will discuss when he began theatergoing as a teen, and how many a play changed his life, be it as serious as A Raisin in the Sun or as light hearted as Damn Yankees. There’s a poignant story about the time he took Yugoslavians to a musical, as well as funny ones involving theater disasters.

Allow me to introduce this short message from Peter about the evening: 



Peter currently appears on the “Broadway Radio” podcast and has a weekly column for Masterworks Broadway. He wrote a regular column, "Peter Filichia's Diary," for and for many years and is also the author of several books. He is a true theater raconteur and promises to regale the audience with his tales. 

The event is free, but reservations are required and can be made at or by calling the box office at 732-499-8226. 

Demand for this event has been very high and only limited seats remain, so don't delay -- reserve your seats today. I assure you you'll be glad you did.
