When We’re All Rooting Together


Don’t call it a comeback, Tower Theater’s been here all year. Other live entertainment venues haven’t been so lucky, though. We talked again with Chad Whitehead, operating partner at the historic Tower Theater on NW 23rd Street in Oklahoma City, to celebrate after they finally received notification that the theater’s Shuttered Venues grant had been approved and awarded. It’s been a long, hard year for the arts and entertainment sectors, many of whom were waiting for financial respite and relief from local, state, and federal governments. If Whitehead knows a thing or two, though, we’re in for musical relief as we move to a new phase of the pandemic with live entertainment venues set to have a bustling second-half of 2021 as capacity restrictions ease and people return to public settings (and check out Tower Theater’s “Don’t Call It A Comeback” concert series in July!).

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
