Got to see something incredibly cool this past week. I’ve been working on a staged reading of a new musical that did a presentation up in Binghamton/Johnson City, NY, at the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage. Next door is the Goodwill Theatre, which will eventually, when restored, be part of a four-venue performing arts complex. Our technical director was kind enough to take us on a guided tour.
It was a vaudeville house before it became a movie theater, one of the first in the country to show X-rated films before abandonment in the 1970’s or early ’80’s.
View of the stage from back of the house. The un-amplified sound from the stage is almost unbelievable.
Old note from the stage manager!
View from stage.
Second floor passageway to balcony seating and restrooms.
I feel incredibly privileged to get to do the job I do a lot of the time, but especially when I get to have experiences like this.
