Wilmington’s Little Broadway kicks off centennial season

    You don’t have to be Willard Scott to appreciate this anniversary.

    It’s been 100 years since the first curtain rose at Wilmington, Delaware’s DuPont Theater in 1913.

    ‘Wilmington’s Little Broadway’ has surviuved the 1918 flu epidemic, the Great Depression, two world wars, scenery collapses and a bevy of other theatrical happenstance.

    Delawareonline.com reports on its centennial season, and the recognition of the distinction as being one of the longest continuously operating theaters in the country.
