Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
So what kind of a first season has it been for Riverside's Fox Theater? Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says the answer would seem to depend upon how you wish to read between the lines of the press releases.
Sokolsky notes that most of the shows booked received a favorable critical response. But many of them had to trim back on performance dates because of poor ticket sales. And now city officials are planning to install a new management team to handle the Fox and Municipal Auditorium.
Meanwhile, there is talk of building a downtown arena for sporting events and large concerts.
Sokolsky says the idea has merit. But is this the right time to undertake another expensive project that could lead to more competition than could be handled at this time?
And more to the point, where is the money for such projects coming from?
