How can we connect the history of Lancaster to upcoming productions such as The Addams Family, Elf, and Legally Blonde?

fulton-exterior-655x400Find out by joining LancasterHistory.org for Thirsty for History Thursday at the Fulton Theatre! Before curtain on the second Thursday of each major Fulton production, LancasterHistory.org makes the connection between each play and local history. We've connected it all---from Hairspray and the Civil Rights movement and local bands to The Phantom of the Opera and ghost stories about the Fulton Theatre. We've even found ties between Spamalot and Lancaster County as we delved into the history of the Kunzler Hot Dog Factory and discussed the Lancaster equivalent of the Holy Grail-an engraved glass chalice (or pokal) made by Henry William Stiegal at his glassworks in the 18th century.

In The Heights


Advertisement art for In The Heights.In The Heights is the first hit creation of Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the Broadway phenomenon Hamilton! A universal story of dreaming big, loving large, and finding a place to call home, In The Heights’ heart is located in a small corner of New York’s Washington Heights. In the extreme heat of mid-summer, the close-knit community prepares to celebrate the 4th of July, dreaming of a better place and “getting out.” Usnavi’s bodega, Daniela’s hair salon, and the Rosario family’s taxi service are at the center of bringing the neighborhood together and forming a family, and they are now on the brink of being closed for good, changing their lives forever. An unexpected chain of events, including a blackout, a winning lottery ticket, with romantic tension, leads the group to discoveries about each other, about themselves, and about the place they call home.

What does In The Heights have to do with Lancaster history? Find out by joining LancasterHistory.org for Thirsty for History Thursday at the Fulton Theatre!
