Tobacco Warehouse pt. 4

In our continuing occasional coverage of "non-profit theater as cultural imperialism" in the form of St. Anne's trying to convert the Tobacco Warehouse into a private theater rather than a public community site, apparently a judge has ruled that the City can't give the Warehouse to them.

(Update: in related news, apparently too many film shoots are annoying local DUMBO residents as well)

That ruling makes me SO happy. I once had a brilliant idea for a play in the Tobacco Warehouse, and even though it ultimately fell through, it would have been brilliant. As brilliant, I'm sure, as many of the other projects have taken place there. I never thought I'd see the day when I'd be against building a theater, but that's an amazing space and I'm so glad it's still available (for now) for public use.
