Abstract: Manuscript transcript copies of receipt books and drama records of the Tremont Theatre (1827–1843) of Boston, Massachusetts.
The Tremont Theatre (1827–1843) on 88 Tremont Street was a playhouse in Boston, Masschusetts. The Tremont never turned a profit during its 16-year life. On December 28, 1843, the Free Church Baptists bought the theater and renamed it the Tremont Temple. The building burned in 1852, and bore no relationship to the later theater of the same name.
Arranged alphabetically by title, then chronologically.
These records all appear to be manuscript transcripts of original records. All items are in the same unidentified manuscript hand. They cover the time period of 1834-1843, but it is not known when the transcripts were created or by whom.
