Talk for the CTA, London

The Cinema Theatre Association (CTA) have asked me to speak about Brooklyn theatres at their monthly meeting in London. March 28th, 2020. This is my first overseas talk. It will add to my reputation as a theatre historian.

I have started a GoFundMe campaign to extend my stay, conducting research and visiting historic theatres. 

Research will be used for future talks, essays, articles, etc. The theatres visited recorded and shared on social media.

Funds collected will go directly to travel within the UK, accommodations, food and everyday expenses.

Since 1997 theatre historian,  Cezar Del Valle, has conducted a popular series of  theatre talks and walks, available for  historical societies, libraries, senior centers, etc.

Del Valle is the author of the Brooklyn Theatre Index, a three-volume history of borough theatres.
The first two chosen 2010 OUTSTANDING BOOK OF THE YEAR by the Theatre Historical Society. Final volume published in September 2014.

Currently seeking funding for “Editing & Formatting” the first three volumes of the Brooklyn Theatre Index, 3rd Edition
