Tomorrow night, the unrestored auditorium will be the setting for another memorable event: the Spring Fling Gala Dinner, the last big celebration amid the shabby elegance we've grown to love before the long awaited restoration begins.
Gary Schiro, executive director of the Hudson Opera House, announced late this morning that the dinner has been sold out--great news for the Hudson Opera House, but bad news if you haven't already secured your place at the festive board. (Swoon is doing the catering). But you can still be part of this momentous occasion by joining the revelers for cocktails and the silent auction at 5 p.m. Call the Opera House (518 822-1438) or check the website to learn how.
Sadly, though, if you're not having dinner, your only glimpse of the stunning decor designed for the occasion by Ken Polinskie may be the photograph that accompanies Scott Baldinger's latest post on Word on the Street: "Smiles on a Spring Night."
