Among Green-Wood's 570,000 permanent residents are some of the most celebrated personalities of the American stage and silver screen. On this trolley tour we'll step back in time and encounter the actors, producers, composers, and directors that left their mark on entertainment history. Discover William Niblo, whose theater in SoHo staged the first American musical The Black Crook (about an evil magician with scoliosis) produced in 1866 by William Wheatley; actor Laura Keene who was onstage at Lincoln's assassination, and actor Kate Claxton who wrote a harrowing first-person account of the Brooklyn Theater in 1876 that killed 284 people. You'll also visit the graves of modern Broadway legends Leonard Bernstein and Fred Ebb on this show stopping tour.
