Our memories of the Playhouse
Thank you for putting this site up on the internet.  Many Sundays were spent here as a child.  Great memories of my childhood.  My Dad once took me to the Playhouse to see Ginger Rogers in Book, Bell and Candle.

We went to see several plays here and they were wonderful, one that stands out is when Ginger Rodgers performed, I believe that was late 50's.  Great time.  Then cross the street to Conrad's for a delicious dinner or to the corner for Carbone's Italian.  Great memories.
