Paul Blake is not the issue. He was told what shows he could do, and how few. I was no fan because he showed no courage, he took the money. his Aida was as good as anythig Mike did, and without the tackey big screen. The issue is the criminal restrait of trade of the greatest outdoo theater in the Country to protect 'pretenders'.

When Schoemehl was Mayor they had one or more 'clear stuff out of the opera house" evets: before he closed it for more than 2 decades. For St. Lous to be a city again, the needed quatity is 800,000 MUNY attendance and 550,000 year round in Kiel Opera House. Dont p;lay the quality or
'generational' game with me, you will lose. Open booking, something for all, blows that out of the water.
