I’ve never been inside downtown Austin’s State Theatre – the Paramount Theatre’s sister stage located adjacent to the north. Years ago, the State Theatre flooded, and hadn’t returned to hosting performances (to my knowledge). If this performance info is accurate, Chris Titus’s appearance on February 1st will be first performance in nearly five years.
I hope this is a sign of more showcase performances at the State. Either way, this is a step in the right direction for a historic Congress Avenue theatre.
