This theater replaced City Hall as a large-scale event space. It was resolved by the Board of Alderman that the Committee on Public Property was authorized to remove any stage effects, properties, and paraphernalia from City Hall. Located at 333 Main Street, the opening performance on September 7 was “Other People’s Money” starring the comedian Hennessey Leroyle.
