The Front Row Theatre

The Front Row Theatre was a huge, 3200 seat theatre in the round. It was built in 1974 and was nearly brand new when I acted on it as the Prince in the musical "Half Past Wednesday"  for Director Jerry Leonard. I remember coming to matinee performances with what seemed like hundreds of buses with elementary school kids lined up waiting to come in to see us. It was really a great feeling knowing I was on the same stage as greats like Sammy Davis, Jr., who had performed here. What a shame that they tore this great theatre down.
