Should the Anaheim Resort Consider encouraging the Building of a Broadway style Theater?
Disney has brought a few hits to Broadway, (Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, Little Mermaid) since Eisner decided to expand Disney's influence. The City of Anaheim, worked together with Disney, to turn at least part of Anaheim into a Resort area, and cleaned up the area around Disneyland.
Anaheim even decided to take a little inspiration from Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and started their own sidewalk stars.
Is it time for Anaheim to step it up further, and encourage the theater to make a home in Anaheim? Right now, DCA's Hyperion theater does an Aladdin Show, which has proved popular. And prior to that, Blast!, which was a Tony award winner on Broadway, also performed in the Hyperion theater, to great success. So, this would just be a step further to appeal to those same crowds.
Now, of course there is Pantages Theater up in Hollywood. But is it possible that a theater, with full Broadway shows would work in Anaheim?
The 2nd question would be where would a suitable place be? Could Anaheim Gardenwalk provide a home to a theater? Or is there a place in a DTD expansion that would work for a theater?
