Square Theatre - by Jasper P. DeVidal.
This book is very informative, entertaining, interesting,
and educational. The story of the Lincoln takes the reader
on an almost 100 year journey with this historic theater,
through its creation and the many changes it has endured
(some intentionally and some tragically). Plus,
it provides details about the performances and artists
that have appeared on stage over the years through unique
anecdotes, ads and photographs.
A great testament to the
proud history of this center of the arts, the Lincoln
Square Theater book is available at the Lincoln Square
Theatre office or call 217-422-1711.
