In the first half of 2011, the Palace closed its doors and underwent an amazing transformation. Artisans and craftsmen peeled back years of alterations and wear and tear to reveal the beautiful theatre hidden underneath. The restoration was achieved under the leadership of one of the Palace owners, Shahram Delijani of the Broadway Theatre Group, and general contractor Ed Kelsey. He will share the story of the “six month miracle” through before and after photos. Several of the artisans and technicians who did the restoration work will be present to answer your questions and explain the techniques employed.
A behind-the-scenes tour – from the basement to the balcony – will provide an opportunity to see the “new” Palace as well as the work yet to be done.
