If you’ve wondered what’s going on with the new Carousel Theatre on the UT campus, wonder no more. Cynthia Moxley to the rescue with photos,  quotes and commentary on a recent meeting of key supporters of the $20 million project.

Details in the Blue Streak.

A quote: Brandon Pace of Sanders Pace Architecture provided the update. He said that the Carousel’s original architect, Frederick Roth, donated his time and efforts as a “labor of love” when designing the original building. Roth was inspired by a tent and sawdust stage, one that could be constantly adapted to the needs of the performing artists.

Pace said his firm drew inspiration from the original concept and used the “tent and sawdust” theme to guide their decisions.
