Dock Street Theatre

This is not a very good picture of the Dock Street Theatre because I took it from a carriage when we were touring the city which I love to do!

On February 12, 1736 the Dock Street Theatre opened with a performance of The Recruiting Officer. Built on the corner of Church Street and Dock Street (now known as Queen Street), the Historic Dock Street Theatre was the first building in America built exclusively to be used for theatrical performances. Flora, the first opera performance in America, took place at the Historic Dock Street Theatre. Click HERE to read more.
