EAST GREENWICH â€” At first glance, the goal for a March 31 reopening of the Greenwich Odeum seems just a dream.
No lights in the theater. No seats. A chaotic mess on stage. And on a subfreezing January morning outside, itâ€™s not much warmer inside.
But if you look closely, you can see a few signs that argue otherwise.
The wood frame reducing the size of the stage, the Odeum Corp.â€™s way around state requirements of sprinklers for a larger stage, is slowly taking shape. The bathrooms, though still primitive by modern standards, have received a cleaning. Two of the new cushier seats that will replace the old hard ones await tryouts in the lobby.
