Love musicals? Then you won’t want to miss this musical tribute to the guy who got it all started. William Wheatley (1816 – 1876) Green-Wood permanent resident and stage star produced The Black Crook, the first American musical. Think of it — the actors acted and sang — and boy did they sing! The show was five hours long and ran for a record-breaking 474 performances at the famed Niblo’s Garden. What got audiences so excited? This your chance to find out. But that’s not all! Songs written, performed, and produced by other Green-Wood residents – including a jingle for five cent cigars, ballads from classic Broadway productions, and a tiny bit of disco – will make this celebration of Wheatley’s 200th birthday a party not to be missed! Be sure to save room for cake!

From arsenic complexion cream and electric corsets, to séances and spirit photography, the Victorians missed no opportunity to jump on the latest bandwagon of wacky and sometimes outrageously dangerous medical, fashionable and spiritual fads.
