Broadway didn't evolve (only) from Yiddish theater. The article actually says that "Yiddish theater turned into Broadway." Yiddish theater was certainly a source, but it wasn't the main contributor.

Aside from that one nitpick, it's a great post.

v'shana tovah to all : >

I'm with booksandlibretti--it was just one of many traditions that all mooshed into Broadway (and i'd say Vaudeville was #1--itself full of all kinds of stuff from all kinds of people)

Absolutely vaudeville -- that's where Harrigan & Hart did their groundbreaking work, and they gave it to Cohan, who gets all the credit today for creating Broadway.
