Columbus

Many cities I have visited and lived in from coast to coast have a quality that is hard to resist. That quality is live professional theater entertainment. Being a native of Columbus, I see an ideal opportunity for adding that quality to our city: a restored and enlarged Crump Theatre.

With that uplift we could attend on a regular basis, viewing professional theater, orchestra, music groups, wine tasting, weddings and other desired events. The Crump could also be used for conventions and business meetings. Why should we have to take the time to drive and spend our money in Indy or Louisville to enjoy that entertainment when it could be produced here in Columbus?

 

Adding a restaurant attached to the Crump would make it even better. Live entertainment would please the customers while they enjoyed their lunch breaks and dinners. Five percent of each dollar spent for drinks and meals will go directly into the Crump coffer to solidify obtaining quality entertainers for their shows.

Columbus needs to step into that category many other cities prosper from. Let us make it so people from other cities want to visit Columbus for something besides architecture.

Don't settle for a preview.
