Set on Savannah’s Chippewa Square, the Historic Savannah Theater is one of the oldest continuously operating theaters in America. Built in December, 1818, the theater has been damaged by fire and storms in the centuries since it’s been built, and is now renovated with an art-deco façade and state of the art lighting and sound. Of the thousands of performers to have graced the stage, notable amongst them are Oscar Wilde and the baseball player Ty Cobb, who performed here back in 1911 in a showing of The College Widow. Today, not only is the Historic Savannah Theater a popular stop on walking tours, but it’s still one of the classiest and enjoyable nights out you can find in downtown Savannah. Shows run 4-6 days per week, and range from live theater to musical performances and special shows for the holidays. If you do decide to attend a live show at the Historic Savannah Theater, you might feel as if you’ve stepped back in time from the moment you walk inside.
The Historic Savannah Theater has balcony and floor seating and a total capacity of 525. Reservations are highly recommended.
