Ward Morehouse III and Katherine Boynton, will talk about behind the scenes on Broadway and inside some of the world’s most lavish hotels at the UGA Libraries Feb. 21.

Ward Morehouse III is a columnist, a playwright, a TV host, sometime critic and an author. His book, Broadway After Dark: A Father and Son Cover 100 Years of Broadway, is a portrait of some of the greats and near-greats of the New York theater.

The father in this literary partnership is Ward Morehouse, Jr. (1895-1966), the legendary Broadway critic whose “Broadway After Dark” column ran for decades in the New York Sun. His interviews with Eugene O’Neill, William Gillette, Laurette Taylor, Gloria Swanson and many other stars bring back memories of the glorious days of the Broadway stage. Ward Morehouse III picked up where his father left off, writing his own “Broadway After Dark” column, as well as reviewing plays for Reuters, The New York Post and The Christian Science Monitor. Ward Morehouse Jr.’s papers are held by the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

Morehouse is also the author of several books, including Inside the Plaza: AnIntimate Portrait of the Ultimate HotelThe Waldorf Astoria: America’s Gilded Dream, and Life at the Top: Inside New York’s Grand Hotels.
