Lancaster Opera House
An lovely intimate auditorium in a municipal building. Supposedly, the room had been used for storage before being recovered for live performance in the 1990s. Vestiges of its 19th century past remained in a "gas light board" off stage left - a set of valves that once controlled gas lighting.
We find that the surface of the country over which a drive must be taken to reach your property...is like the country generally about Chicago, not merely uninteresting, but, during much of the year, positively dreary. (Frederick Law Olmsted, 1868)
