CityViews 9/28/11: What Would a Broadway Theater Really Mean for SLC?



Segment 1:

Salt Lake City continues to push for a Broadway-style theater downtown, but how would such a facility really affect local arts groups and what would it bring economically to the community?

  • Ken Neufeld, Operator, The Shuster Center, Dayton, OH
  • Reginald James Johnson, Interim Director, Community and Economic Development, Durham, NC

Salt Lake City is bringing these three in to speak at a community forum tonight (Wednesday, Sept. 28) at 7 p.m. in the Main City Library auditorium, 210 E. 400 S, Salt Lake City.

Segment 2:

Contributions for Al-Bayati’s burial fund can be made at any Wells Fargo Bank under his name.
