New Audience Cooling System
Muny President and CEO, Dennis Reagan, announced today that The Muny is working on a two-part project that will substantially enhance audience comfort by improving airflow during performances. Plans, which call for a significant upgrade to an existing blower system and the installation of new state-of-the-art fans, will directly address the top audience request, to keep them comfortable. The Muny’s goal is to have the complete system in place for the 2013 season.
“After three consecutive summers of record-breaking temperatures, we are excited to be taking steps to improve the comfort of our audience,” said Reagan. “This may be one of the most exciting developments in The Muny’s 95-year history, continuing our tradition of giving our audiences exceptional theater and an extraordinary experience.”
This historic project was made possible by a generous lead gift from Harry and Sally Johnston and the Henry O. Johnston Family Fund. The total project is expected to cost $600,000. Additional supportive members of the “Muny Fan Club” include Ameren Corporation and Interco Charitable Trust, along with other major gifts scheduled for announcement in 2013.
