“Before YouTube there was television, and before that there was radio, and before everything there was the town opera house. Ann Satterthwaite’s study of this rich and intricate building type is nothing less than the story of the emergence of mass culture in America.” – Michael J. Lewis, Faison-Pierson-Stoddard Professor of Art, Williams College
