Professor Brian Doyle (Journalism, Communication and Theatre) will discuss his forthcoming book Rediscovering Wisconsin's Opera Houses on Monday, April 3, at 12:30 p.m. in the Lehman College Art Gallery. Sponsored by the Gallery, this presentation is free and open to both the campus community and the public.

Professor Doyle's book, which will be published by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press, focuses on the restoration and renovation of Wisconsin's opera houses or vaudeville theatres, each of which appears in the National Registry of Historic Buildings. The talk will feature a Powerpoint slide presentation.

A native of Wisconsin, Professor Doyle specializes in teaching the art of the theatre. He recently directed a new adaptation of Molière's Tartuffe for the College's theatre program.
