Topic - Howard Theatre

The Howard Theatre is a historic theatre, located at 620 T Street, Northwest, Washington, D.C.. Opened in 1910, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. In its heyday, the theatre was known for catering to an African-American clientele, and played host to many of the great black musical artists of the early and mid-twentieth century. The Howard was billed as the "Theater of the People", and played host to two theatrical organizations, the Lafayette Players and the Howard University Players. In September 2010 extensive renovations were started to restore the theatre to its former glory. - Source: Wikipedia
