Capitol Theatre Gets Ready to Reopen Doors


With a confirmed list of 40+ artists schedule to perform over the coming months, Port Chester, NY’s The Capitol Theatre will reopen its doors on September 4th.  Though no artist has been confirmed for that date as of yet, artists currently scheduled to perform include Bob Weir, The Roots, My Morning Jacket, Umphrey’s McGee, Fiona Apple, Warren Haynes, Galactic, moe., The Moody Blues, Buddy Guy, amongst others.

The iconic theatre has hosted legendary acts such as the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Janis Joplin, Derek and the Dominos, and David Bowie, and has acted as a practice space for Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel.  It originally opened in the 1920’s as a vaudeville theatre, and was revamped as a performance space in the 1960’s, only to be closed shut down in 1976 after a village ordinance banned live music after 1am.    It was reopened by local developer Marvin Ravikoff in the 80’s and used mainly for musicals and plays, but did host a few concerts in the 90’s, one of those shows being a Phish concert.

Brooklyn Bowl co-founder and publisher of Relix magazine, Peter Shapiro, is the driving force behind the renovation of this historic theatre.  He approached Mr. Ravikoff two years ago, had the vision of what this venue could once again become, and after massive renovations and installations of state-of-the-art light and sound equipment is set to have some of the best acts in music grace this stage once again.  The Bowery Presents, which has partnered up with Shapiro, will be handling booking of the 1,835-capacity theatre.

Though the venue doesn’t currently have a confirmed lineup for the opening night on September 4th, it is safe to assume that whichever act gets booked to do the honors will be the right one, as this project has been carefully planned and well thought out.  Stay tuned for more details.  For now, take a look at the current schedule.
