EPISODE 182: Legler tells us the pain of beautiful Broadway lights being off at The Hippodrome

    With so many local businesses shuttered due to the COVID-19 crisis in America, we decided this week to focus solely on the arts and entertainment institutions in the Baltimore area and how they are being impacted by all aspects of the corona virus.

    If you love the arts and have been a supporter of theater, music, galleries or museums, please take some time to subscribe to Baltimore Positive and hear all of these incredible stories of perseverance and storytelling that makes our city so rich with culture, tradition and cool, creative people keeping our energy alive – even during a crisis unlike any in our lifetimes.

    This is Ron Legler, President of France-Merrick Performing Arts Center at The Hippodrome and the co-founder of Pulse in Orlando. His incredible life experiences in crisis management have come in handy this month as the Broadway lights are off downtown during the pandemic. And, once again Don and Nestor argue about the merits of “Wicked” as a Broadway legend and sing some show tunes to pass the time during this crisis.

    Listen and learn about the history of The Hippodrome! We did…

    Clearly, a lot has changed and it’s happening very quickly – and crisis management has become the key role for all us during the pandemic.

    We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

    We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders throughout this pandemic at Baltimore Positive. And we expect to do it at a rapid pace so stick with us and subscribe!

    Like all others, we have halted a “live schedule” and will continue to launch our chats as we have them during this crisis. Expect more than less.

    Because of the election moving to June 2nd, we will be having more of the mayoral candidates back to Baltimore Positive to discuss all of the current issues and the additional five weeks of virtual campaigning for the hopefuls.

    Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

    We were built for this…
