      About this Savannah, Georgia tour

      Since 1818, The Historic Savannah Theatre has seen the likes of W.C. Fields, Sarah Bernhardt, Edwin Booth (John Wilkes Booth's brother), Oscar Wilde, Tyrone Power, and Lillian Russell take to its stage. Even baseball legend Ty Cobb performed here, appearing in the 1911 production of The College Widow. And, across the street from this Art Deco structure is where those famous park bench scenes were filmed inForrest Gump.

      The theater has survived multiple fires, hurricanes, economic hardships, and numerous owners but remains an icon of Savannah's rich, cultural heritage.

      Today, you get to be part of the ongoing history of this storied theater. You'll experience a high-energy variety show, including music, dance, and comedy. You'll hear songs from several genres - pop, rock n' roll, jazz, Broadway, country - but it all has a Southern twist. Sing along to songs like Sweet Home Alabama, Jailhouse Rock, andMidnight Train to Georgia. By the end of this fantastical two-hour show, you'll be laughing, singing, and dancing in your seat.

      He killed it on stage.

      Edwin Booth was considered one of the most famous actors, and one of the best Shakespearian actors, of the 19th century. Edwin performed several of Shakespeare's plays at the Savannah theater in February 1876, 11 years after his younger brother (and fellow actor) John Wilkes Booth gained infamy for assassinating President Abraham Lincoln.
