This is one glorious theatre, and if a theatre can have nine lives, the stories so faithfully listed here by Ross Melnick do make it seem that the KEITH’S will endure yet again. As with all such venues of larger scale, it remains to be seen if a successful programming can be found to sustain so ornate and expensive a house. This saga is repeated in a great many theatres across the land, and we can but hope that in this case so wonderful an architectural jewel has found the ‘sugar daddy’ needed to meet the expenses during the lean times that will surley come when the entertainment-sated public turns its fickle attention elsewhere. Hurrah for the KEITH’S/SAVOY/OPERA HOUSE, long may her lights shine!
