Say goodbye to Broadway, save your self a two hour trip, traffic and parking headaches, go to the Palace Theater, you’ll be glad you did. Born and raised in New York City, attended On and Off Broadway theaters until moving to CT in 1985. I heard about the “old” Palace from Waterbury born co-workers and last night for the first time, I entered the Palace doors with my wife to see Lord of The Dance. To everyone who had anything to do with the Palace Restoration project, my hat is off to you ! You have restored a Crown Jewel ! The moment you walk through the doors it is awe inspiring, the marble, the chandeliers, the grandeur of the 1920s hits you unlike any theater I
have ever seen in New York City. Seeing Riverdance perform so close to our home in Prospect, is spectacular to say the least. It is such
a pleasure to see the old craftsmanship of turn of the century
artisans, restored instead of demolished. The State of Connecticut
and the City of Waterbury have made a wise investment with the $30
million dollars spent on this project. I think anyone who has been
there to see these opening shows will agree……. it’s time to say
Goodbye to Broadway, say hello to Waterbury and save money while you’re at it !

Thank you Palace,thank you Riverdance, thank you for a wonderful
evening. We’ll be back !
