Howard Theatre In D.C. Returns After Hiatus

| No Comments

Historic Howard Theater in Washington D.C. is set to reopen on Monday after a vacancy stretching back to the 80s with a performance by local rapper Wale.

Renovations to the theater totaling $29 million centered on restoring the appearance it had in 1910, reported the Washington Post.

The Washington Post also reported the renovations included removal of the old theater style seats and added black-walnut walls, 200-inch HD screens and VIP areas.

Referred to as "Black Broadway" the theater hosted acts like Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald, reported NPR.
