Orpheum Theatre in Madison, WI may Reopen Under New Management in December

| 1 Comment

One of the oldest theaters in Madison, WI, The Orpeum, could reopen soon with it being taken under the wing of new management.

A local Madison promoter, Frank Productions, signed an agreement with the theater's court-appointed receiver to manage the theater until it is sold in a sheriff's sale next year.

Frank productions is submitting an application for a new alcohol license at the advice of the city attorney's office. The license will most likely be approved at the November meeting of the Alcohol License Review Committee.

"They have an established history with the city," said Ald. Mike Verveer, 4th District, of Frank Productions. "I don't have any concerns with their management of this landmark venue."

In an agreement between Dane County Circuit Court appointed attorney Rebecca DeMarb and Frank Productions, Frank Productions will manage the theater until it is sold in eight to 12 months.
