Don't miss An Evening with Broadway Insider Peter Filichia!
LIMITED SEATS REMAIN!
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
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 Playbill.com

books. He is a true theater raconteur and promises to regale the
audience with his tales.
