Lancaster Opera House

Lancaster, NY

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 should not expand our public enterprise beyond our capacity to govern or permit private business to function or expand at the expense of the welfare of the average citizen (Robert Moses)
