Onondaga Historical Association Executive Director Gregg Tripoli will give a presentation entitled "The Shuberts of Syracuse: The Brothers Who Built Broadway" on April 17 at 7 PM at the DeWitt Community Library. A true rags to riches story, the three Shubert brothers from an immigrant family worked their way up through the local Syracuse theater scene to become producers and theaters managers/owners. By their teens, they managed the top three theaters in Syracuse. The brothers went on to build the largest theatrical empire in the world, creating Broadway as we know it today.
