DAVENPORT, IA — The Adler Theatre has just reopened after over a year of extensive renovation to the stage so it can attract more broadway plays. Plus, it will be celebrating it’s 75th anniversary this year.

The Adler reopens this weekend after $9 million in improvements – including a deeper stage, a loading dock, additional dressing rooms, improved sound and computerized rigging systems – just in time for the 75th anniversary of the former RKO Orpheum Theatre.

The changes will allow a wider array of Broadway shows and concerts to be performed on the Adler stage.

The renovations came after the City of Davenport purchased the adjacent Mississippi Hotel so the Adler stage could be expanded.

Paul Westlake, the architect for the project, said it was the most complex of 75 theater renovations in which he has participated.
