Say Goodnight, Gracie
George Burns was in the spotlight for more than 90 of his 100 years, with many of the most memorable years spent alongside his wife and comedic partner, Gracie Allen. In this one-man Broadway show, Alan Safier embodies the affable storyteller, weaving tales of his vaudeville days and famous partnership with Gracie with radio snippets, video clips, and vintage photographs.
Genesee Theatre began its life with a sellout. Opening its doors on Christmas Day 1927, it welcomed audiences to four sold-out movie screenings, but those flickering stories weren't the only attraction. A $25,000 pipe organ—and that's in old-timey dollars—immediately caught the eye, while Italian marble, a stunning chandelier, and the building's Spanish Renaissance–style architecture dazzled.
Over the years, many changes occurred, the glamorous quotient rising or dipping with the times and the theater closing altogether in 1989. But when it reopened again in 2004, it was back in full force. Antique chandeliers and fixtures of the period had been brought in from around the country, the luxe carpet had been re-created from a 1927 photograph, and all the dust bunnies had been sent packing with generous severance packages. Yet not all the updates were of the old-fashioned sort: the stage was doubled in size, and cutting-edge technology was brought in to give the theatre's high-voltage visitors, from comedians to musicians, the star treatment.
