Music Hall wish list, and other things
Thanks to the people who are e-mailing their wishes for the upcoming remodeling-updating of Music Hall. Sandye mentioned that the place needs more benches in the public areas. And yesterday, Don sent these suggestions:
"As to what I want in Music Hall? Simply. Everything you suggest: more leg room, restaurant like the Metropolitan Opera, a wine bar, an upscale cafe. If and when the development around Washington Square happens, and more people feel safe in the area, then Music Hall with those amenities would do well, I think. Especially for the 2010 production of Meistersinger. Five hours. I'll need a dinner or a least a decent snack and a glass of good wine.
"I loved reading about Eartha Kitt, one of my favorites of that time. But my all time favorite was the sexy, sultry voice of Edith Piaf, the French woman of the 40's and 50's. And I tend to forget about jazz in Cincinnati. It's been too long since I was a the Blue Wisp. You may have prompted me to go down there again."
