In 1931, Broadway producers and Weston residents Lawrence Langner and his wife Armina Marshall transformed an old red barn into the Westport Country Playhouse.
Downstairs — across from the River of Names tiles — posters, photos and memorabilia celebrate 8 decades of entertainment, enlightenment and education.
Included is a shot from the 1st-ever show: “The Streets of New York,” starring the legendary Dorothy Gish (and the long-forgotten Rollo Peters).
Only a tiny smidgen of stuff is on view. To see more — including a show — go to the Playhouse itself.
