Anything Goes. Oklahoma. Follies. La Cage Aux Folles. Those four musicals, plus many others, all got their start at Boston's important Colonial Theatre. Now, as the Colonial is in danger of shutting it doors, Feinstein's/54 Below celebrated the famed venue with an evening of songs and stories last night and BroadwayWorld was there.

54 Programming Director Jennifer Ashley Tepper was on hand to share trivia and anecdotes about the theatre that has been host to such legends like Cole Porter, Jerry Herman, and Stephen Sondheim. Theatre professionals who tread the boards at the Colonial over several decades all came together to pay tribute to this important house- and share why it must be made a landmark by the city of Boston!
