The Richmond Free Press’ “Personality” page in the current edition gives well-deserved props to Todd Waldo and the Robinson Theater:
Todd B. Waldo recalls eagerly watching the restoration of the Robinson Theater at 29th and Q streets in Church Hill in 2008.
“I live two blocks from there,” he says. “I still remember the first time I walked by and saw the marquee lights turned on. I was proud of the work. And seeing ‘Robinson’ shining brightly at the front of the building gave me hope.” The newly renovated facility reopened in February 2009 as the Robinson Theater Community Arts Center under the leadership of Executive Director Betsy Hart.
Mr. Waldo says he had moved into the East End community a few years earlier, lured by the charm, diversity and volunteer spirit of the close-knit neighborhood.
