Leaders of the Capri Theater have decided that the future is now. Rather than wait for a capital campaign to reach its goal of at least $9 million, the organization announced Wednesday it will use about $600,000 for immediate improvements.

Since the City is broke and the State is broke maybe honorary chairman Rybak can come up with a creative financing plan - the city and state would pay the cost and the theatre would put on plays. A public/private partnership such as Minneapolis is famous for.

"Two million in pledges." Not one mention of taxes. Do you people just copy/paste your "Blah blah blah my TAXES!" comments into every Strib story? Boring.

I'm all for making the Capri Theater a northside destination point for theater arts. However, the Capri's neighboring retail and residential spaces are in complete disrepair and quite uninviting. Is there off-street parking for the Capri? Are there any options in the area for pre and post theater gatherings, dinner, etc? You can't fix one without the other. The Capri Theater alone will not make West Broadway a destination point.

I am dissapointed because the picture above, though a nice picture of Latrell, fails to mention that another younge man, Jovonn, was also in the play. It was not a "one-man-play" But a play with TWO of the students from PYC. Jovonn was heartbroken to see this article today!

Congrats to the Capri for the excellent coverage on the development. All of us who have been working for re-development of the Northside arts scene are pleased that the Capri will be a welcome addition to existing efforts. Workhouse Theatre Company has been working for the last five years towards the same goal and this past fall the arts community gave Workhouse Theater an Ivey Award for excellence in theater. That award belongs as much to Workhouse as it does to the Northside. We look forward to the Capri joining our efforts in bringing positive attention back to the Northside. Jeff Redman Artistic Director Workhouse Theatre Company
