News 12 gets sneak peak at Billie Holiday Theatre renovationsPosted: Updated:
News 12 got an inside look at the massive Billie Holiday Theatre restoration ahead of its May 9 reopening.
Dr. Indira Etwaroo, the executive director of the Bedford-Stuyvesant theatre, says just about everything inside the facility was updated – including the seating, carpets, acoustical panels, theatrical lighting system and an entirely new audio and visual system.
It also has new dressing rooms for performing artists.
The 45-year-old theatre welcomes around 30,000 people annually.
"The community cares so deeply about the space and about this theater and this has been an artistic home for our community," says Dr. Etwaroo.
