Diamond In The Rough

The Emery Theatre reclaims its spot in the local and national spotlight

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 20, 2012
If the historic Emery Theatre had a voice, it was a distant echo ricocheting off of boarded-up buildings and dissolving into the background, unheard by Cincinnati for the nine years its doors were closed. Lately, however, the Emery is a murmur growing louder among art enthusiasts.
