New venue needed
Kudos for the well-balanced piece detailing the unfortunate circumstances surrounding an otherwise incredible performance at the First Congregational Church. It is particularly disheartening that a reasonable discussion was prevented by both sides, and that neither side was able to represent their view in an instructive, inclusionary way. While I am hopeful that all involved take the opportunity to see the merits of the other side, at no other time has it been clearer that a new performance venue for our city is needed.
