Closed For The Season

Municipal Opera Box Office
One of STL's favorite institutions is the Muny Opera in Forest Park. It's America's largest outdoor musical theater with 11,000 seats. There are 1,500 free seats for every performance, first come, first served. 

The repertory tends to be oft-recycled Broadway shows. Mrs. C and I haven't been since we were newlyweds. By this time, if I had to sit through The Music Man on a sweltering St. Louis summer evening it might take 76 trombones to silence my rage.


The theme for City Daily Photo bloggers on February 1 is
           "A Scene from a Cafe or Coffee House.”

Great doorway! Would love to see inside. ;-)

For the eye you have here a very nice art-deco fence.

I do like the details on this doorway... very distinctive!

You made me laugh! I saw several performances there when I was working in St. Louis. I remember one of them being particularly steamy (weather wise).

I don't think I've ever heard of that before Bob, 1500 free seats!! That's a pretty generous community commitment no matter how many trombones are playing :)
