Will A ‘New’ Shubert Theater Tower Over Broadway?
Since everyone is dousing everyone else these dog days with buckets of ice to raise money for ALS research, I offer a challenge of my own to the New York Posts’s Michael Riedel: Meet me at Bar Centrale the day after after Labor Day, 2019. If, five years from now, there’s a new, 1,500-seat Broadway theater around the corner on Eighth Avenue between 45th and 46th streets, you can douse me with a bucket of ice and I’ll write a $100 check to the Shubert Foundation. And if it’s a Shubert theater, I’ll make it $200.
If, however, there’s no theater in the luxury apartment tower Gary “One57” Barnett’s Extell Corp. is planning for that site, you have to write a check for $200 to my favorite charity, Greater Education, Rehabilitation And Recreation for Dropouts (you can just use the initials).
