ST. LOUIS, MO — The Orpheum Theatre has been purchased by Mike and Steve Roberts, who also own the Roberts Mayfair Hotel, an historic Wyndham Hotel (adjacent to the Orpheum), and the historic “Roberts Lofts” (former Board of Education building, designed by I. Taylor, located across the street at 9th and Locust).
Although still in the planning stages, I believe this will be another fine renovation. In St. Louis, the Roberts brothers are well-known patrons of the arts, who’ve gained much respect for the thoroughness of all their various endeavors. As a native of this historic city, I look forward to attending the Orpheum Theatre’s grand re-opening… without a doubt!
