MTH's humble beginnings
began with the "A
Night on the Town" Radio Series", a weekly radio
show about the history of the American Musical, written and hosted
Harter. In 1998 George created Musical Theater Heritage as a 501c3 so as to
syndicate the program on a national level and to entertain and
enlighten new generations with the legacy of this American art
form known as Musical Comedy.
his radio show is sponsored by the historic Algonquin
Hotel in New York City, and is heard in Dallas, Atlanta,
South Florida and on New York Public Radio. Locally, "A Night
on the Town" is heard on KPR,
at 91.5 FM, Saturday nights at 9pm. The program is also
available online on the "A
Night on the Town" website.
York, New York!
times a year, MTH
takes theater fans to New York for organized trips that
Broadway shows, fine dining, four nights at the Algonquin Hotel
and fascinating insights into
the history of Broadway and the American Musical. Please join us! Here's a list of our upcoming trips.
