A Return To The Congress

Yes, I spent many nights at the Congress Theater back in the day. It was poorly run, overdue for a deep cleaning and lawless. But it still somehow always pulled in great shows.

When it shut down two years ago I was pretty sure I’d never be back there but I got the chance last weekend when a local developer announced its purchase and forthcoming renovation. I attended an open house at the theater and learned a bit more about the plans behind the Congress’s reopening.
