This study traces the earliest Italian participation in theatrical activities in New York City during colonial times and illustrates how community organizations were the first impetus for entertainments and drama after the mass immigration of the late 19th century. As a working class, permanent immigrant population grew, an identifiable and unique Italian-American theatre became possible, fulfilling a social need within the community.
