In this anthology, Robert Lewis brings together primary sources on the history of early American theater and variety shows, the materials ranging from programs and advertising bills to contemporary commentary and the memoirs of performers. Although printed, these rare, inaccessible, and/or scattered sources achieve the "archival." Lewis's collection make them available not only to historians but also to their students in American-culture courses.
