The Lutcher Theater today announced the retirement of Jim Clark and named Lynae Sanford as the new managing director. Jim served the community well for almost 30 years, bringing us great performances. I once said I had never been to a bad show at the Lutcher and Jim said, “Then you haven’t been to the theater enough.”
The Lutcher Theater and Shangri La Botanical Gardens announced the return of Symphony at Shangri La featuring the Symphony of Southeast Texas. The concert has been rescheduled for Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 5 PM. Originally it was scheduled for the fall of last year, but had to be rescheduled due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey. This is not the reopening of Shangri La. The buildings of the botanical gardens are still undergoing repairs, but the gardens are in good shape and will be opened for this event only.
Due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey, the Lutcher Theater has cancelled Momix Opus Cactus scheduled to perform on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. The Lutcher hopes to reschedule this event in a future season at a date and time to be determined.
As storm results continue to develop, it is anticipated that other upcoming shows this fall might also need to be cancelled or postponed, until later dates, to be determined. The Box Office staff plans to return to work on Monday, September 11, 2017 and will be in touch with patrons soon regarding refunds and possible rescheduling information.
I laughed, but to be honest, even after that, I think there was only one show I couldn’t give a great review.
Jim, you served us well and I know Lynae is going to do a great job as your successor. Enjoy your retirement. You earned it.
