First Nighter Program

First Nighter Program

At the show’s opening we hear the welcoming host, “Mr. First Nighter”, stroll along Broadway to “the little theater off Times Square” where the listener is then seated in the fourth row, center, just in time for the show. This elaborate start to the program allows the audience to become totally absorbed; it really is as though you are in bustling New York. As for the plays themselves, they are generally light romance with perhaps a hint of melodrama every so often.
