It’s not nice to leave a lady waiting…
Somehow, I missed this cool little feature about The Long Center for the Performing Arts, our sparkling new venue for the last two seasons, that aired on CNN a few weeks ago. This Segment, from CNN’s ‘Building Up America,’ gives a two-minute history lesson on how the Palmer Auditorium was converted into a stunning new theatre for a fraction of what it would have cost to tear it down and start from scratch. As they say in the segment, it was Austin ingenuity at its best. Enjoy!
Watch our gorgeous new video (you may remember the shorter version from this year’s production of The Nutcracker), featuring Company Dancer Ashley Lynn Gilfix and sponsored by BMW of Austin.
And endless thanks to the wonderful production team that made this possible: The Liberal Arts, Beef and Pie Productions, and Ariel Quintans of Action Figure.
