Yesterday, on the Paramount Center for the Arts Director Lisa Reiss sparked some public commentary on the theater’s offerings and role in the community.
Patch commenter Wes Pomoroy wrote that the he feels the Paramount has always offered, “lame acts.”
“It's always seemed that the theatre either couldn't afford any good acts, or was somehow hostile towards popular tastes in the name of "culture". There are hundreds of Tier 1 or Tier 2 performers (and old movies) out there, which could draw huge crowds (and revenue). And they wouldn't be mutually exclusive to more cultured programming.”
A Peekskill-Cortlandt Patch Facebook fan wrote that she would like to see the Irish group Celtic Thunder come to town.
Regardless of how you think the Center has performed in the past, what would you want to go see there? What is going to make you take out your wallet, pay the $20 or $30 for a ticket and know that you will leave happy? I know I would be thrilled if I saw the name Bonerama or Soul Rebels written on the marquis.
